JPSO seeks gas station robbery suspect

Metairie, La. - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is looking for a suspect who attempted to rob a cashier at Metairie gas station.

Police say on May 9th a man entered a Shell gas station at 900 Clearview Parkway.  He placed a white plastic bag and a note on the counter in front of the clerk.  The cashier read the note, which demanded the money.

The register would not open, because a transaction was not made. The man fled the business on foot.  No getaway vehicle was spotted.

The suspect is described as a white male, 20 to 25 years of age, medium height, thin build.

He has letters tattooed on the outside of his fingers on his left hand and possibly on the fingers of his right hand.
