Officials released surveillance images Monday of a man who used a gun to rob a gas station attendant in Cherokee County.

Sheriff’s deputies went to the Gulf station about 12:10 p.m. Sunday in the 12000 block of Cumming Highway, according to the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office. 

When they arrived, the attendant told them a man came into the store with a gun and demanded money from the register, Sgt. Marianne Kelley said.

He then took an undisclosed amount of money and ran toward a wooded area behind the store, Kelley said.

The man is between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-7 and wore a mask, sunglasses and gloves, authorities said. He was wearing a gray hoodie with an emblem on the front and a motorcycle on the back, Kelley said. The hoodie also possibly had the insignia of West Coast Choppers. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Criminal Investigation Division at 770-928-0239 or 911.
