SUFFOLK COUNTY— Police are hoping a man’s distinctive skull tattoo will lead to his arrest in the April robbery of a Long Island pet store.
About 4:15 p.m. April 21, police said the man entered Petland Discounts at 2799 Route 1 in Medford. He pushed an employee while flashing a gun and demanding cash, police reported.
After the employee handed over money from the register, the suspect pulled down a rack of shelves and fled, police said.
The unshaven robber was described as a thin white man standing about 5 feet 10 inches, wearing a black baseball cap with a black “A” on the front with white trim. He has a distinctive skull tattoo behind his left ear, police said.
There is a $5,000 cash reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest. Contact Suffolk Country Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
