Buckeye Gold bandit sought after armed robbery

BEXLEY, Ohio (WCMH) -- Investigators are asking for helping finding the Buckeye Gold bandit that took more than $6,000 in jewelry and cash in a late October armed robbery.

As the clerk began to talk with the suspect, the suspect pulled out a silver semi-automatic handgun from his waist and demanded the employee to give him cash in a trash bag from the store.

The man is described as a black male, between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs between 175 and 180 pounds. He has tattoos on the right side of his jaw, cheek and neck. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, white baseball cap with black details on the bill, dark blue pants and dark shoes.
