Suspect sought in Wilcox robbery attempt

Posted

The Baldwin County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public’s help with identifying a suspect in an attempted armed robbery. On April 25, just after 6 p.m., a subject walked into the Outpost Gas Station located off Exit 53 in the Wilcox Community brandishing a firearm and demanded money. The clerk advised the suspect that she did not have any money and the subject departed the location without taking anything.

The suspect is being described as a tall white male (approximately 6-foot-4) wearing all black with his face covered. Video obtained on scene shows the suspect leaving in what appears to be a mid-2000s model Lincoln MKZ, tan with a possible dealer drive off tag or paper tag. The suspect left the Outpost Gas Station and began driving east bound on I-10 towards Florida.

If you have any information about this incident, please call Sgt. Matt Morrison at 251-972-8589 Option 1.
