The clerk handed cash to the suspect, who then fled the scene in a silver Acura.

Deputies quickly found the vehicle nearby and pulled the driver over.

Deputies found clothing and the stolen cash inside the vehicle, but a weapon was not found in the vehicle or on the suspect.

He was last seen wearing a light blue hoodie and black pants.
