Law enforcement officers are searching for a suspect after a convenience store in North Crossett was robbed at gunpoint over the weekend.

Ashley County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Josh Pollock said deputies responded to a robbery at the E-Z Mart convenience station located on Arkansas Highway 52 in North Crossett at approximately 2:10 a.m. Jan. 4.

Pollock said Monday morning that no arrests had been made and declined to release extensive information about the incident as the investigation was still pending. 

Pollock said that the suspect had a gun during the robbery but did not release the type of gun. 

The suspect — who officials believe was a male — reportedly entered the store wearing a Victoria Secret Pink sweatshirt.

Pollock said the suspect’s face was covered with only their eyes visible.

The store reported that approximately $95 was stolen, and Pollock said no one was harmed during the incident. 

The incident was still under investigation. Officials are asking that anyone who may have information regarding the incident to contact the sheriff’s office at 870-853-2040.
