      Albany police are on the hunt for an armed robber.

      Around 3:30 Tuesday morning, a man in his 40 TMs walked into the Flash Foods convenient store at 2447 N. Slappey Blvd. asking for change.

      When the employee opened the register, the man pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money.

      He's approximately 6 TM0 to 6 TM2, heavy build with a medium brown complexion and has a mustache/goatee. He was wearing a red and tan cap, dark shirt and pants with a black bubble style jacket.

      The suspect was last seen in the area behind McDonald's and P&P Garden & Hardware Store. Albany Police set up a perimeter around this area but the suspect was not caught.

      If anyone sees the suspect, call the Albany Police Department or Crime Stoppers.
