ORANGE PARK, Fla. – The Clay County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man that robbed a convenient store Tuesday in Orange Park.

Deputies said the man entered the Circle K on Blanding Boulevard shortly after 3 a.m. 

The man made a purchase, but when the clerk opened the cash register, he reached across the counter and took money from the register drawer, deputies said.

After taking the money, the man fled in a dark-colored SUV, according to deputies.

Deputies describe the man as white, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall and 180 pounds. He has a mustache and long, dark hair that was pulled back in a ponytail. He has a distinctive tattoo, possibly of an eagle, on his right upper arm.

The man was seen wearing khaki shorts and no shirt when he went into the store.
