Police searching for suspect in armed robbery

SELLERSBURG — The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed robbery and is looking for the public’s help identifying the suspect.  

At about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, a male subject entered the Days Inn Motel, located at 7618 Old State Road 60 in Sellersburg, and held up a clerk behind the front desk while displaying a black semi-automatic pistol, according to a police press release.

The clerk provided the suspect with an undisclosed amount of cash.  

The suspect then fled the motel on foot and left the area in a black or dark colored car, according to the release.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5 feet 6 to 9 inches tall and between 150 and 170 pounds.  

He was wearing a black or dark blue, zippered hoodie, white T-shirt, black hat with a white design, light colored khaki pants and white and black high top tennis shoes.  

The suspect has a mustache and goatee.   

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Randy Burton with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office at 812-246-6996 or the anonymous tip line at 812-280-2276.
