Officers are looking for a suspect who they said robbed the Moto Mart in Fairview Heights Friday morning.

Police said the suspect entered the store just before 2 a.m. armed with a handgun and led the clerk to the cash register and took an unknown amount of money in about a minute.

The suspect is described as a black male with a thin build about 5’10” wearing a Washington Redskins hoodie, a red bandana over his face with gray sweatpants and white tennis shoes. Police did acknowledge the similarity between this suspect description and past robberies where the suspect was also wearing a Washington hoodie. However, authorities are not certain it is the same suspect.
