Cameron Police, overnight, reported a SECOND robbery of a Casey's General Store, this time at a different location from the Wednesday morning robbery.

Cameron Police were dispatched to the Casey's at 305 East Evergreen at about 1 AM in the SOUTHERN part of Cameron in response to a 911 call for assistance. Police were then informed about the robbery at the store.

The suspect is described as a tall and slender male of unknown race, approximately 5'11" to 6 feet tall. The suspect was observed wearing a hot pink sweatshirt and sweatpants, with black boots. He was wearing black gloves with some type of yellow design or writing on the tops of the gloves. The suspect was also wearing a mask to cover his face.

At the Casey's store overnight, a silver revolver was used by the suspect. All employees at the store escaped the robbery safely. The suspect was observed running westbound upon leaving the store.

Cameron Police continue with their investigations, including the Wednesday morning robbery of the Casey's store of 405 West Grand Avenue (in NORTH Cameron).

In both cases, reward of up to $1,000 are being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. Those with information are asked to contact the Cameron Police Department. Pictures of the suspect can be viewed on the Cameron Police Department's Facebook page.
