Aiken County deputies are looking for a man caught on video jumping over a convenience store counter and grabbing money from an open cash register.

According to a news release, the strong-arm robbery occurred shortly after 8 a.m. Sunday at Mani's Mart in the 200 block of Cary Drive in Beech Island, Lt. Michael Frank said.

A man wearing a tie-dyed T-shirt leaped onto the counter, snatched money from the cash register, then ran to a pickup truck and sped away toward Augusta.

The truck is described as having a 1980s body, toolbox and a South Carolina license plate beginning with "134" and ending with a "J".



Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator J.D. Sanders at the Aiken County Sheriff's Office at (800) 922-9709. Individuals also should call Crimestoppers of the Midlands at (888) 559-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible for a cash reward of between $50 and $1,000.

it shouldnt be too hard to find this guy's truck if the cops have 4 of the plate numbers! I think he'd have gone down if she'd have punched him :)

I don't know about that "do

I don't know about that "do not stop someone from robbing you comment." I understand the reasoning behind the comment. A little bit of money isn't worth your life, that is for sure. Myself... I don't think I could stand by and be a victim, especially since this clown didn't have a gun. I like the fact this woman fought back. I would have enjoyed the video even more if she had managed to carve his eyes out with a pencil. Mrs. "convenience store clerk" if your readying this, I salute you, damn good job.

He's lucky he got a head

He's lucky he got a head start running out of that store. Big girl was wide open. She probably would have put him and his truck in the choke hold.

That should win America's Funniest Home Video and the cashier should get that $1000.00 reward to top it off.

I couldn't help but watch that video again. That guy was such a damn coward. I guess the lady in the video wasn't quite as vulnerable as he had hoped.
