Shawnee Police are investigating after a man robbed the TempStop convenience store early Friday.

Officers were called to the store, located at 13515 W. 63rd Street, at 1 a.m. on reports of a robbery.

The clerk told officers that an older, light-skinned black male reached over the counter and grabbed cash when the register was open, no weapon was displayed.

The suspect is described as 40-50 years old, about 5-feet tall with short gray hair and a mustache. He was last seen wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with white drawstrings and black pants.

Shawnee Police Department spokesperson Major Bill Hisle says, "[the suspect] acted as if he was going to make a purchase. When the clerk opened the drawer, the subject reached into the cash register and pulled out what money he could."

The man left the area in a silver sedan, which was last seen westbound on Shawnee Mission Parkway from Pflumm Road.

No one was injured in the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to call Shawnee Police at 913-631-2155 or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477).

The TempStop convenience store, on the northwest corner of Pflumm Road and Shawnee Mission Parkway, also was robbed three times in a 13-week period between February and May 2013. In those robberies a Kansas City, Kansas man was arrested and has pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated robbery and one count of kidnapping. Antwan T. Robinson is scheduled to be sentenced in June. More on the 2013 robberies and the arrest of the suspect can be found from Operation 100 News.

Heck, robbers just need to go up and down Lakecrest Dr. to find all the homes that fail to close their garage doors.
