Niles police have photos of thief

NILES — Police have what they believe are identifiable photos of a robber who took an undetermined amount of cash this morning from National Cash Advance on Youngstown-Warren Road.

Ken Criswell, chief of detectives, said the man, wearing a white hoodie, asked to purchase a money order, then jumped behind the counter and kept his hand in his pocket as though he had a gun. Criswell said the man never showed the weapon.

The robber took the cash and forced two employees into a back room before fleeing the store. The security-camera photos show the mustached robber wearing a cap with a football helmet logo under the hoodie.

Police have distributed the photo and have asked anyone with information to call 330-652-9944.
