Sheriff’s deputies today released video of a man who they say robbed the Cross Convenience Store on Old Highway 6 in Berkeley County on Tuesday.

The man entered the store and asked to be pointed in the direction of the bathroom, spokesman Dan Moon said.

The man entered the bathroom for a moment, then approached the counter to purchase a pack of gum, Moon said.

When the store’s clerk opened the cash drawer, the man sprayed a self-defense spray in that person’s face, Moon said.

The clerk slammed the cash drawer shut and ran away to call 911, Moon said.

The man grabbed the cash register and fled the scene in a grey or silver four-door sedan, Moon said.

Deputies are still searching for the man, who has not been identified.

Anyone with information can call Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office at 719-4412 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
