Richland County, SC (WLTX) - Richland County deputies are searching for a suspect they say tried to rob a Family Dollar store.

Officers say the suspect went in to the Decker Boulevard business on March 17th wearing a mask and holding a gun.

One employee was able to escape the building and call 9-1-1. Officers say the suspect demanded that a second employee open the register. When that employee wasn't able to open it without a manager, the suspect left the store.

Anyone with information in this case should call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC, or e-mail a tip in to www.midlandscrimestoppers.com. You can also text information in by texting "TIPSC" plus your message to CRIMES (274637). Either way you choose, your identity will remain anonymous, and you could be eligible for a cash reward.
