Authorities seek Middletown robbery suspect

MIDDLETOWN – The Lake County Sheriff's Office is seeking information about a man who allegedly robbed a convenience story in Middletown on Sunday.


Capt. James Bauman of the Lake County Sheriff's Office said sheriff's deputies responded to the Store 24 convenience store on Highway 29 in Middletown at about 5:30 a.m. Sunday on a reported robbery in progress. The suspect had left the area prior to the deputies’ arrival.


Employees told deputies that an unknown white male adult had entered the store, pointed his finger at the clerk simulating a handgun, and demanded all the money in the cash register, Bauman said.


No actual weapon was seen, however Bauman reported that the clerk gave more than $200 in currency to the suspect before he fled on foot from the store. There was one patron in the store at the time of the robbery and he was ordered on his knees while the crime was committed.


The suspect was described as a white male adult with dark-colored eyes and a medium build.


Bauman said the suspect was wearing a black jacket with a camouflage hood, black or dark-colored denim pants, black gloves and white athletic shoes. He was last seen fleeing on foot to the east of the store.


Anyone with information relating to the robbery should contact the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit at 707-262-4200.
