A masked armed robber made off with cash from an Auburn convenience store Saturday morning, according to police detectives.
The suspect is still at large, said Auburn Police Sgt. Dale Hutchins.
A clerk called police about 5:30 a.m. and reported that a man had walked into the store, displayed a black pistol and demanded cash. After the robbery, the suspect fled on foot, going westbound on Auburn Ravine Road.
Police and Placer County sheriff's deputies searched the area, turning up evidence, but the suspect eluded capture, Hutchins said. A surveillance video camera recorded the crime and was reviewed by investigators.
The suspect is described as a white male adult, about 5'8", with a medium build. He was wearing a blue and gray knit poncho, black athletic pants, black and red gloves and a dark-colored mask.
Anyone with information about the suspect or crime is asked to call Hutchins at the Auburn Police Department at (530) 823-4237, ext. 207.
