LONG BEACH -- Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying suspects in a Jan. 12 strong armed robbery.
Police Chief Wayne McDowell said a person wearing an orange hooded sweatshirt and a white mask approached the manager of the Pineville Plaza Shopping Center's Domino's Pizza about 1 a.m. and snatched the night deposit bag containing about $1,000.
McDowell said the person then fled north toward Pineville Road, was joined by two other suspects believed to be lookouts, and then jumped into what authorities suspect is a dark Chrysler Pacifica driven by a fourth person.
McDowell said the manager surrendered the money immediately and was not harmed during the incident.
Police believe all the suspects are male.
Surveillance videos, available at SunHerald.com, show footage of the vehicle backed between a fence and the Goodwill donation center across the street from the Domino's.
Authorities have several suggestions for people who work late hours:
n Park close to the entrance/exit and in a well-lit area.
n Never walk to your car alone.
n Call the police department for an escort if you're uncomfortable.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the police at 865-1981 or 863-7292, or call Crime Stoppers at 877-787-5898.
