Police Investigating Robbery Of Pizza Business

Cookeville police are continuing to investigating the robbery of the Domino's Pizza on North Willow Avenue over the weekend. According to a report by Officer Justin Long, the robber made off with about $120 dollars in cash. Authorities say he had entered the business just after eleven o'clock Saturday night, then left briefly, but returned and said he was not leaving until he got the money from the register. He told the clerk that he needed the cash because his home was in foreclosure and he needed to make a payment. And while no weapon was displayed, the employee said the suspect kept reaching into his pocket as if he had a weapon. She finally gave him about a hundred dollars in five dollar bills, plus about twenty one-dollar bills. The suspect was described as a white male, about six feet tall, in his late 20s, with a red mustache, a blonde, long beard and a goatee. He was wearing big, dark sunglasses and a long black shirt with a gray undershirt. Police later recovered some black clothing and latex gloves believed to have been worn by the suspect.
