MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Money and cigarettes - that's what one bold robber demanded when he pointed his gun at a South Third Street gas station clerk and customer.

It was an armed robbery in progress, and it was all caught on surveillance tape.

"That's terrible, that's being in the wrong place at the wrong time," noted one customer.

Surveillance video from several angles shows the robber taking the money and cigarettes from the store clerk, then taking money from a customer before running off.

The manager declined to go on camera, but says he believes the suspect has been at the store before. The manager also noted that the store has been robbed before, and he's ready to put bullet-proof glass around the counter.

However, that doesn't make some customers feel any safer.

"Well it will secure the workers in the store, but its not going to secure the customers that comes in," said one customer.

Meanwhile, police are still trying to find the man in this surveillance video. If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
