BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Biloxi Police are on the hunt for the suspect who they say robbed a store Friday evening.

Authorities say a man held up the Discount beer and tobacco store on Pass Road in Biloxi around 6 PM, Friday.

Police say he used a small 'blue steel' handgun while robbing the clerk at gunpoint, and then he took the money from the cash register.

Look at these images: he is wearing glasses in one image, but that is believed to be a disguise.

Police say he fled the scene in an older model tan or gold Lexus with damage to the front fender.

If you have any information about this crime, you're encouraged to call Biloxi Police at 228-392-0641.

His is a black male between 5' 8" and 5' 11", stocky, and has short hair. It is believed that the glasses he is wearing in this photograph are a disguise. The below is a photograph of the same man without glasses.
