Police are searching for a white man in his 40s after a robbery at Albertson’s grocery store Wednesday morning.

Police said the man walked into the business at 6520 N. Nevada St. around 9:30 a.m. and confronted an employee at the customer service counter. He had his hand inside a black, leather satchel-type bag and stated he had a gun, a release said.

He fled the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The man is described as thin, 6 feet tall, approximately 40 years old, with long hair and wearing blue jeans, a light grey hooded sweatshirt and a navy baseball hat.

The release said this man is believed to have also robbed the Java Hut Espresso stand the same day.
