St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who robbed a Slidell-area gas station overnight.
Shortly after 1:30 Wednesday morning (August 30) a man walked into the Circle K Gas Station on South Military Road and demanded money.  The cashier gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash from the register, and he fled on foot headed south on South Military Road. 
The suspect is described as a white male, thin build and approximately 5 foot 6 six inches tall. He was wearing a dark-colored long sleeve T-shirt with a distinctive block-style yellow lettering on the back, blue jeans, tan shoes and a white and purple/blue hat. 
Anyone with information on this crime or recognize the individual in the surveillance photo obtained from the business, is asked to call Detective Steven Chiasson at 985-726-7824.
