AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Aiken Department of Public Safety officers are looking for an armed robber who stole cash from a business on York Street Wednesday morning. 

An unidentified man entered Approved Cash Advance shortly after 10 a.m., pointed a handgun and demanded money, Detective Jeremy Hembree said. The man fled the area with an undisclosed amount of money.

He is described as a tall, skinny black man dressed in all black with a camouflage scarf, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety. 

It is unclear whether the man left on foot or in a vehicle, investigators said. 

Officers brought in bloodhounds to track the man but did not locate him.  

Anyone with information on this case can contact Detective Margaret Moore at 803-642-7684 or Crimestoppers of South Carolina at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
