HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Police are looking for a man who robbed the Check Into Cash in Howland.
The robbery happened just after 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Elm Road NE payday loan store.
According to a police report, the suspect walked into the store, pushed an employee to the ground, and demanded that they open the money drawer.
The man didn’t show a gun but made everyone get on the ground, according to dispatch.
“They said he did not show a gun, but they assumed he had a gun when he came into the business,” Police Chief Nick Roberts said.
An employee told investigators he also asked where the cameras were and tried ripping them from the walls.
He left in a black-colored Ford car with tinted windows. He was reportedly heading toward Warren.
Reports from dispatch say the man was wearing a bandana on his face during the robbery.
