COLUMBIA, SC - Interim Police Chief Ruben Santiago hopes citizens will recognize the mannerisms of a man who disguised himself as a ‘mummy’ to rob a local gas station.

The crime occurred shortly after 9:00 p.m. on July 28, 2013 at the Quick Stop located at 4000 Trotter Road.

Surveillance video from the store shows the armed man walking into the store and pointing a gun at the clerk.

The victim complies with his demands and places a small amount of cash into a plastic bag.

The suspect is seen grabbing the bag and quickly leaving the store.

The suspect’s disguise is rather unique. Aside from wearing a dark blue jumpsuit, it appears that he has a white cloth, possibly a T-shirt covering his entire face and head. He is also wearing white gloves.

The suspect is described as a black male, possibly 20-25-years-old, between 5’8” and 6 “tall, 150-160 lbs. with black hair and brown eyes.

The clerk was not physically harmed during the incident.

Despite the disguise, Chief Santiago hopes citizens will recognize his mannerisms, clothing or have knowledge about the crime.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
