DIXON – Police still are looking for information on a robber who displayed a handgun at Casey’s General Store before making off with an undisclosed amount of cash around 2 a.m. Saturday.

The robber, who managed to cover up sufficiently so that police aren’t sure if it was a man or a woman, took the cash from the clerk at Casey’s around 2 this morning.

The robber was about 5 feet tall and wearing athletic pants with white stripes down the legs, a dark-colored sweatshirt or coat, gloves, and some type of scarf or mask over most of his or her face, Dixon police said in a news release.

He or she fled the store at 1401 W. Fourth St. on foot. Anyone with information is asked to call the police at 815-288-4411.
