MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. (WHNT) – Muscle Shoals Police investigators need your help identifying the man who they said robbed a convenience store at gunpoint Tuesday night, then put the clerk  in the cooler.

Surveillance cameras at Listerhill Station caught a man walk into the store, hiding what police said is a gun under his shirt. You can see him demanding money from the clerk.

After the clerk handed the man the cash in the register, investigators said he walked the woman to the back cooler, before heading out the door. In a bright red hat and colorful attire, investigators hope you might recognize the cold-hearted thief, and call the Shoals Area Crime Stoppers tip line anonymously — the number is (256) 386-8685.

Florence Police are working to track down a few of this week’s most wanted.
