JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police are looking for a man they say stole money from a Kangaroo Store on the Southside.

The robbery happened at the Kangaroo store on the corner of Baymeadows Road and Philips Highway around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, the man entered the store without anything covering his face.

Police said he then put on a black ski mask over his face.

According to JSO, the man showed a black and silver semi-automatic handgun to the clerk. 

He ordered the clerk to give him all the money that was in the register, police said.

Police said the man left the store on foot. He is in his early 20s and about 5 feet 9 inches tall. He last wore a gray Nike hooded sweatshirt, the ski mask, black and white tennis shoes, black gloves, and 3/4-length baggy dark shorts, police said.

OH SNAP U RACIST U RACIST YEAH DOG U REALIST... I mean RACIST... so we are supposed to just roll over and play dead when ever anyone cries racist now a days. As pointed out, its not RACIST to say "hoodies are part of the thug culture and used for robberies and at other times when relatively stupid people try to conceal thier identities by COVERING THIER HAIR and NOT THIER FACE"... anyway just because THEY are stupid it still doesnt take away from the facts. Realist here, not neccesarily a RACIST.

notice the hoodie to conceal his features during robbery. Then people are offended by no hoodies up in stores.
