The Perry County Sheriff’s Office investigates a Tuesday night robbery.

Authorities said just before 9:30p.m. they received a call from Wohrle’s Carry Out in Shawnee. The clerk told deputies that a male subject wearing a grey jacket with a black strip across the front and down the sleeves along with a black mask opened the door and grabbed the cash register off the counter and ran out the door with the register.

The clerk said the suspect didn’t say anything and did not show a weapon.

Witnesses said a late ’90’s to early 2000 white Pontiac pulled up to the business and a male got out and went into the store.

There was an undisclosed amount of cash in the register.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sergeant Pat Corder at (740) 342-4123 ext. 239
