The Caldwell County Sheriff's Department is looking for a man they say robbed a convenience store at gunpoint Thursday night.

A man entered the Market Basket convenience store at 4940 Grace Chapel Road about 10 p.m., flashed a handgun and demanded money, a press release issued by the sheriff's office stated. The man left through a side door, and a store employee didn't know whether the man got into a car or ran away, Sgt. Chris Martin said. The amount of money he took was not released.

The man was described as white, wearing military dog tags, black pants, a gray hooded sweatshirt and black shoes with white laces.

Anyone with information is asked to call Caldwell County Crime Stoppers at 758-8300 or Cpl. S. Hartley at 759-1526.
