Police hoping to track down a suspect have released video of an armed robbery in St. Petersburg.

It shows a man – described as a black male in his early 30's – enter a Check 'n Go check cashing service and leave with money. It happened around 11 a.m. Monday at the location at 2148 34th Street South, police said.

The video shows the man enter the business and expose the butt of a gun to the clerk. Police said he threatened to shoot the clerk if he didn't give him money.
