The Fort Smith Police Department is seeking an armed robbery suspect after a man robbed a gas station with a screwdriver, according to a news release Thursday (June 26).

The incident happened on Thursday morning at 12:24 a.m. at the EZ-Mart located in the 8000 block of U.S. 271 S. An employee reported that she was stocking coolers when a white man with a medium build (5’10 to 6’0) wearing a black sweater and blue jeans approached her armed with a screwdriver or possibly a knife, according to the release.

With a gray toboggan hat covering his face, he took an undisclosed amount of money and left the store on foot traveling southeast.

Anyone with knowledge of the suspect or crime is asked to call the Fort Smith Police Department at 479-709-5100 or the River Valley Crimestoppers Tip Line at 78-CRIME.

    Bad guys need to be caught. Look at the shoes,the hat, the time, the clothing. This guy will move onto more crime if he isn’t apprehended.

    Thug probably found or stole the screwdriver and didn’t know how to use it. Probably thought and thought then decided it would make a pretty good weapon to scare a woman. He should have been confronted by a man that had a nice Glock or S&W and this would have ended differently.
