Canton detectives are asking for the community's help in the continued effort to identify a woman who they believe robbed a Goodwill store clerk at gunpoint in December.

According to police reports, a woman entered the store around 6:30 p.m. and shopped briefly before she went to the cash register clerk and said, "Give me everything in your register and don't make me shoot you."

The clerk told police she saw the woman reach into her pocket and reveal what looked like the wooden handle of a pistol. The woman made away with an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register.

There is new information available regarding the getaway car, said Sgt. Shawn Gaddis with the Canton Police Department.

Authorities are searching for a dark green 1999 Ford Escort with several bumper stickers on the back. The license plate was covered with a piece of paper, however there was a red bumper sticker below the left brake light.

The clerk told police the woman was about 5 feet tall and appeared to be in her late 30s or early 40s. There was a male passenger in the car.

A witness told police the suspects were seen parked on Sunset Circle off Gold Street in Canton shortly after the robbery.

Anyone with any information about the incident is urged to call the Canton Police Department at 828-648-2376.
