Berrien Co. police searching for violent armed robber


The Berrien County Sheriff's Department is asking for your help identifying an armed robbery suspect who struck a check cashing store on Saturday.

Authorities say a man entered the Allied Cash Advanced store on S. 11th Street in Niles Township, showed a handgun, demanded money, and attacked an employee.  The victim was treated and released at an area hospital, but the robber escaped on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The robber is described as a light-skinned black male in his mid twenties to early thirties, about 6'1" and 210lbs.  Police say the suspect had 5 O'Clock shadow, and cracked lips. The robber was wearing light gray baggy sweat pants, dark colored nylon jacket that resembles a jogging coat, black nylon hat with a small bill that was wore backwards and a square diamond earring in his right ear.

If you have information on this case, you are asked to call the Berrien County Sheriff's Department at 269-983-711 ext. 6242 or CrimStoppers at 800-342-STOP (7867).
