The Becker County Sheriff's Office has released four photos of a suspect who robbed a gas station on Tuesday. 

The robbery occurred at the Orton's Cenex Convenience Store in Audubon at approximately 12:58 a.m. Tuesday, with a white male suspect handing a note to a clerk demanding cash and warning that he was armed with a gun. 

Two employees in the store at the time of the robbery were unharmed, and the suspect never exposed a firearm. The suspect, described as being about 6-feet-tall and 200 pounds, got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes. 

The robber left on foot and a K9 track was unsuccessful. 

Photos of the suspect are below and anyone with information is asked to call the Becker County Sheriff's Office at 218-847-2661.
