TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Terre Haute police are looking for a male suspect from an attempted robbery Thursday morning.

At around 6:20 a.m., THPD was called to 1301 Poplar Street. Officials report a male suspect who was wearing a dark hoodie and a ski mask attempted to rob the Jiffy Mini Mart.

THPD was told by a witness that the suspect lifted his shirt as if to display a weapon. But, at this time, officials do not know if the suspect was armed or not.

The Assistant Manager from the Jiffy Mini Mart stated the male suspect came into the store, placed a bag and a note on the counter and demanded money. That is when the manager and another employee ran into a back room, locked the door and called 911.

The male suspect grabbed the note and took off. The manager stated the suspect did not get away with any money. The clerk described the male suspect to police as being about 5’7” tall with a thin build.

Four armed robberies were reported last week and this is the fifth time THPD has been called to a gas station for a robbery related incident in the past two weeks. This Jiffy location is also the same store where a $1 million Powerball ticket was sold last week.

If you have any information about this case you are asked to contact the Terre Haute Police Dept. at 812-238-1661 or call Crime Stoppers at 812-238-STOP.

News 10 will continue to follow this story and bring you updates as information becomes available.

A detective believes the occupants of the vehicle robbed two truckers back on September 10th.  It happened at the Road Ranger truck stop on the north side of Marshall.

Note the tan vehicle in the attached pictures. That’s the vehicle police say was driven by the two men who robbed a pair of out-of-state truckers. The vehicle has no front plates, so police say it’s possible the car is from Indiana or was recently purchased.
