Lawrence police seek public assistance in identifying robbery suspect



At approximate 9:11 p.m. Sept. 4, Lawrence police responded to investigate a robbery of the Marsh located at 5104 N. Franklin Rd.

Marsh employees reported that a male approached the register, as if to make a purchase, and when the employee opened the cash drawer to get change for the purchase, the male leaned on the counter stating, “I’ll need all the money out of the register”, and “I don’t want to get violent, but I have a gun.”

After obtaining cash, the male departed from the business on foot. No firearm was displayed, only implied.

The suspect was wearing a tan, baseball-style cap, dark shirt with a light-colored shirt underneath and blue jeans. He made no attempt to conceal his identity.
