According to authorities, at around 1 a.m., an adult white male forcefully gained entry into the convenience store. The suspect attempted to access a safe, cash register and ATM machine.

The man is described by the sheriff’s department as about 6-foot in height, medium build, with a large nose. He was wearing a black shirt or jacket, a black face mask, goggles and light-colored gloves.
