DETROIT (WWJ) – Police are searching for the man who robbed a Family Dollar on Detroit’s east side and made off with an arm full of cat food.

Police say the armed robbery occurred around 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday in the 15200 block of E. Warren, near Lakepointe Street.

According to police, the suspect entered the store and walked up and down the aisles as if he was shopping.

The suspect is described as a medium build black male, approximately 40-years-old, 5-feet 7-inches tall and 180 lbs. with a goatee and mustache. At the time of the crime, he was wearing a dark color t-shirt, blue jeans and a dark colored scarf covering his head.
