Suspect Wanted In Liquor Store Robbery

(New Haven, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – New Haven police looking for the suspect in a liquor store robbery in the city late Monday afternoon.

They say around 4:30, a man entered the Middletown Package Store on Middletown Avenue, rushing the clerk, who believed the suspect was armed with a handgun.

The suspect demanded cash, making off with $800 and several packs of cigarettes.

He is described as black, about five-foot-eight, 150 pounds with his hair in dreadlocks.

The crook was dressed in a white shirt with a “Rings End” logo, glasses or safety goggles, a red cap, dark pants and work boots.

Detectives think the object the clerk mistook for a gun may have been a cylindrical object like a flashlight.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact New Haven Police at (203) 946-6304.
