MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A man posed as a customer before pushing a Dollar General clerk and taking off with the cash register.

What the crook likely did not know is that he was caught on camera.

Memphis police said the man went into the Dollar General on Getwell Road and pretended to be a customer purchasing some items. When the clerk scanned his items, he pushed the clerk and jumped over the counter.

He then grabbed the entire cash register and ran out of the store.

Police said he drove away in a white, four-door Sedan.

The man is described as a 25-30 year old male, approximately 6 feet tall, weighing between 160-170 lbs. 

If you recognize the man, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
