WALL OF JUSTICE (WRGT) -- Helping get dangerous criminals off your streets. A special feature you'll only see on FOX 45. We look at the area's most wanted.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is searching for a suspect in an aggravated robbery at the Dollar General in Harrison Township.

The man was caught in a surveillance photo.

"He entered the Dollar General in Harrison Township. He indicated that he had a weapon and that he wanted the money in the cash register," Montgomery County Sheriff’s Detective Patrick O'Connell said.

The suspect is described as a white male, 6-foot tall with some facial hair on his chin. But it's what he's wearing that detectives say could help them.

"We're not sure the logo that was on the left breast, and the rear of the jacket which may be an indicator to help us identify this individual," O’Connell said.

Detectives are concerned about the man's manner in the Dollar General on North Dixie Drive.

"He was very calm, he walked in, he was in there less than three minutes," O’Connell said. "Which appears that he's done this more than one time due to the way he handled himself."

And with Christmas just a few days away they're worried the suspect could get worse.

"Individuals like this, if they start out and indicate that they do have a gun, they may have a gun, if they're confronted they may use a gun and then we have a more violent crime," O’Connell said.

If you recognize this man you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 222-STOP (937-222-7867),
