The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is looking for an armed robber who hit the jackpot at Ebro Greyhound Park.
The Sheriff’s Office says a man stormed into the park Tuesday, shortly after it closed at 3:00 a.m., overpowered a security guard and ran into the room where the cash is kept. He grabbed an undisclosed amount of money and ran off.
Sources at the track tell News Channel 7 the suspect, who was wearing a mask, hit the security guard over the head with a fire extinguisher. They also say the crime was caught on surveillance camera.
The security guard refused to be transported by EMS.
Investigators have identified a number of possible suspects.
