GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- Grand Junction police continue to search for the suspect involved in an armed robbery at a Grand Junction Check Into Cash business.
Around 4 p.m. Monday, a male suspect with a handgun entered 2546 Rimrock Ave. and demanded money.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 20s, around 6 feet tall and between 140 and 150 pounds.
He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, jeans and blue and white tennis shoes.
Police responded to the scene, but the suspect had already fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
Amber Lindblom was working at the store next door when the robbery took place.
"I heard loud noises and talking and things like that. I didn't think anything of it," said Lindblom.
K-9 units were called in to search for the suspect, but didn't have any luck.
Authorities were able to find a handgun inside the Check Into Cash, although they are not sure if it was the only gun the suspect had.
"It's possible," said Sgt. Derek Rosales of the Grand Junction Police Department. "We're going to treat it as if he is, but the information we're receiving is that a weapon was recovered."
There were no injures during the robbery.
