FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

Florence Police are working on an armed robbery that occurred early Friday morning.

It happened around 4 a.m. at the Quickstop located at the intersection of Royal Avenue and Hermitage Drive.

The suspect is described as a male, 5'11 to 6'. He fled on foot after the robbery. No further information is available at this time.

"They're very dangerous and at any time, one of these robberies could turn violent, even accidentally violent," said FPD's Cliff Billingsley.

Police said a man robbed the Western Finance store on Mall Road at gunpoint on Tuesday. It's unclear right now if the two robberies are connected.

Anyone who has any information about the crime is asked to contact the Florence Police Department at 760-6610. You can also submit tips by text message; send the phrase FPDTIP plus your message to ‘CRIMES' (274637).
