Columbia County deputies continue to look for a man they say robbed a Martinez convenience store early Sunday by using a screwdriver.
A Circle K cashier said that a man police identified as Terrell Demar Cooper, 26, was loitering in the store at Old Evans and Old Petersburg roads at about 4:10 a.m., sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said in an email.
About 20 minutes later, Cooper allegedly walked to the counter with a drink and asked her to make change for a $10 bill, according to a police report.
When the 24-year-old opened the cash register, she said Cooper demanded all her money and pulled out a screwdriver from his front pocket.
The cashier said she gave Cooper an undisclosed amount of money.
The suspect road off on a black mountain bike equipped with a flower heading west on Old Evans Road. Police believe he is in the Martinez or Evans area.
Cooper is 5-foot7 and weighs about 200 pounds.
