Crime Stoppers searching for attempted robbery suspect

Crime Stoppers are searching for a person who they believe was involved in an attempted robbery early Sunday afternoon.

The suspect told the employee that he had a weapon and the cashier believed it was a gun. However, no one ever saw the weapon.

Once the cashier refused to hand over any money, the suspect ran out of the store.
