Witnesses say a white man wearing a green bandana over his face entered the store with what appeared to be a hand grenade. The man demanded cash and a pack of Camel non-filtered cigarettes from the store clerks before fleeing on foot.
The man is described as being of medium build and approximately 6' tall. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a green camouflage bandana over the top of his head and a lime green bandana over his face. He was also wearing a white baseball hat with a turquoise rim that had a logo for the "Brickyard 400-Indianapolis Motor Speedway- August 5, 1995." The hat also had light blue paint spots on its left side.
