Police are still searching for suspects in an armed robbery at Walmart on Friday. At approximately 8 a.m. on May 27, officers were called to the local store at 235 Queen Street in Southington, but the suspect fled prior to their arrival.

According to the investigation, a 5’8″ black male weighing between 160 and 170 pounds with a well-trimmed beard and hair approached one of the registers with a bottle of iced tea. He was wearing jeans, a blue baseball cap, and a two tone grey shirt with blue sleeves. As the clerk attempted to ring out the beverage, the suspect lifted his shirt to show the clerk a handgun he had tucked into his waistband. The suspect then demanded money from the register.
