Published on: 3/1/2012

Waukesha - The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department has released photos of an armed robber captured on surveillance cameras at Quarry Mobile Mart on Lisbon Road in Sussex last week in hopes someone will recognize him and provide information.

The robber walked into the mart shortly before 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23, displayed a sawed-off shotgun and demanded money. The clerk did not resist and turned over what sheriff's spokesman Detective Steve Pederson described as an undetermined amount of cash. The robber fled without further incident.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, in his mid-40s and with a weathered, acne-pocked face. He spoke without an accent and was wearing a denim coat, blue jeans, tan boots and Oakley style glasses.

If anyone recognizes him or has information, they are asked to contact the Sheriff's Department at (262) 548-7122 or Detective Jay Dunston at (262) 424-9001.
