Police car lightsA knife-wielding man robbed a dollar store and on S. Four Mile Run Drive last week and used a slightly unorthodox method of obtaining cash.

Police say the man ran off with the store’s cash register and, a short distance away, smashed it on the ground to open it. He then fled in a getaway vehicle with his pilfered cash.

From this week’s Arlington County crime report:

ROBBERY, 150219028, 4100 block of S. Four Mile Run Drive. At approximately 2 pm on February 19, a male subject entered the Dollar Up store and brandished a knife at an employee. The subject grabbed the cash register and fled the store on foot. A short distance later the suspect is seen slamming the register on the ground and taking an undisclosed amount of money before driving off in a getaway vehicle. The suspect is described as a black male in his fifties. He was wearing a dark colored winter coat and brown beanie.

The rest of the crime report, after the jump. All named suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
