TOWN OF GATE CITY, Va. – Investigators with the Virginia State Police and Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) are asking for the public's help in identifying and locating a white male who robbed at gunpoint a Southwest Virginia ABC Store Monday evening (Dec. 15, 2014).

Shortly before 5 p.m. Monday, a white Honda Accord pulled into the parking lot of the ABC Store on Route 23 in the Town of Gate City, Va. After several minutes, a white male exited the vehicle and walked through the front door of the store. Wearing a gray or greenish stocking cap, sunglasses and a dark bandana over his face, the subject displayed a handgun, approached the cashier and minutes later escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. The subject fled the scene in the same white Honda Accord heading south on Route 23 towards Kingsport, Tenn.

The man is believed to be between 5'8 and 5'10 in height and weighing approximately 210 to 215 lbs. He was dressed in blue jeans and a sweatshirt with a Fox Racing logo on the back and lettering down the right sleeve.

There were only two store employees inside the store at the time and neither one was injured in the robbery. The robbery occurred at 4:57 p.m.

The white Honda Accord is believed to be within the range of a 2000 to 2005 year model.

Anyone who might recognize the individual in the surveillance photos or has any information concerning this incident is asked to please call the Virginia State Police at 276-228-3131 or, if in Virginia, dial #77 on a cell phone. The public can also call 911 if you see a vehicle fitting the description of the white Honda Accord.
