The Prince Edward County Sheriff’s Office is asking residents for some help in the wake of a Friday night robbery. 

According to Prince Edward Sheriff Tony Epps, at approximately 7:50 p.m. Friday, the clerk at the Tiger Corner was robbed at gunpoint. That convenience store is right next to the old Fishin’ Pig location. Epps said the robber entered the store and demanded money. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect then fled the scene on foot, heading south on Farmville Road. Here’s where residents come in. The Sheriff’s Office pulled an image of the suspect from a nearby camera, taken as he was entering the store. Epps is asking people to take a look at the admittedly grainy image and see if they can help identify the person. Now if you recognize the suspect, you can give that information anonymously. If anyone recognizes the individual in the photo or has any information, they can call The Prince Edward County Sheriff’s Office at 434-392-8101 or Crimesolvers at 434-392-3400.
