CARUTHERSVILLE -- Law enforcement authorities are continuing their search for a robbery suspect and seeking the public's help.

Pemiscot County sheriff's deputies were called to the Carmacs Convenience Store located at the Missouri-Arkansas state line on Sunday afternoon, according to Pemiscot County Sheriff Tommy Greenwell.

Responding deputies were informed that a substantial amount of cash had been taken from the store's office area. When authorities reviewed the surveillance tapes, they discovered a black male wearing a yellow T-shirt with red letting, blue jeans and a pair of dark colored shoes had been in the office area.
