A man wearing a police badge early this morning asked whether United Foods employees had weapons before he tried to get to the cash registers.
A security guard told police around 12:50 a.m. the man entered the grocery store, 2141 N. Main St., and asked to see their liquor license. When the guard told him they don’t sell alcohol, the man asked whether the employees have weapons, according to a Dayton police report.
The suspect then tried to open the security door that leads behind the cash registers. When the guard asked the man for his identification, he left in a gold Buick Regal, the report stated.
Surveillance video shows that the suspect stands 6 feet, 3 inches and weighs about 170 pounds with long black braids in a pony tail and a long black goatee. He was wearing a white long-sleeve button-up shirt with black pants and black shoes. He also was wearing a silver police badge around his neck, according to the report.
The matter remains under investigation.
