Horry County police are searching for a woman who robbed a convenience store while wearing a surgical mask, according to a report.
Officers were called about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday to the Kangaroo store at 4408 U.S. 501, which is near the Tanger Outlets at Waccamaw Pines Drive, police said.
Police learned a woman came into the store wearing a blue surgical mask and walked up to the counter and gave the clerk a note that read: “this is a robbery, don’t be brave, I have a gun,” according to the report.
The clerk gave the woman cash from the register and she asked for the $20 bills, but he said he didn’t have any, according to the report. The woman took about $100 cash, the note and then left.
She was last seen getting into an older model van and driving away, according to the report. Detectives are investigating the incident and interviewed several witnesses at the store and reviewed video surveillance.
