Thief robs Richmond check cashing store

The clerks at the Cash Express in Richmond are used to giving out money as part of business, but one clerk tells police she was forced at gunpoint to give up cash to a very apologetic robber.

Just before 11:30 Wednesday afternoon the clerk working behind the counter said a man came into the store through the back door carrying a gun.

The man demanded money, the clerk gave it to him and then he ran off. But not before turning to her and saying, "I'm sorry." Despite those apologies police say the man should still be considered dangerous.

The suspect is a white man around five foot six, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

Police say he left the same way he came in, out the back door. Police dogs were brought out to search the are but were unsuccessful in locating the suspect.
