The Cary Police Department is searching for a man armed with a handgun who robbed a 7-Eleven store in Cary early Tuesday morning.

Cary Police Chief Patrick Finlon said that officers were called to the 7-Eleven, 296 Cary Algonquin Road in Cary just after 2 a.m. Tuesday for a report of an armed robbery.

Finlon said that police reviewed the surveillance footage inside the store and said that a suspect displayed a silver handgun and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk complied and gave him the money from the cash register.

The suspect, who is described as a male white between 30 and 35 years old, fled the store on foot in an unknown direction with a brown 7-Eleven bag containing the stolen money. Police said the man was around 5-foot-6, wearing a black leather jacket, grey sweatpants, grey shoes and square dark frame glasses.
