December 23rd, 2011 by Staff Report in Local - Breaking News

Police are looking for a man who robbed a store employee of more than $2,000 Tuesday night, according to Chattanooga police reports.

Just before 11 p.m., an employee from Finish Line rolled down his car window to place a deposit bag in the drop box at the First Tennessee Bank branch at 2173 Northgate Park Lane.

A man with a thin build, wearing an oversized hooded red sweatshirt and a black toboggan with white skull face on it, brandished a "shiny chrome" semiautomatic handgun, the report said.

"Give me all the money," the man said, grabbing the bag from the employee, the report said.

A total of $2,317 was taken.

The robber was able to walk away and was last seen going between the El Meson Mexican restaurant and a large office building.

Officers have not found anyone matching the description.
