An armed robber remained on the loose five days after a Park Rapids convenience store was robbed at gunpoint of $200.

Park Rapids Police Chief Terry Eilers said investigators were looking into the possibility that the robber or possible cohorts purchased lottery tickets from another convenience store shortly after the heist last Thursday.

They were reviewing store security footage in the second gas station to see if they could identify the ticket buyers.

Meanwhile, police released two enhanced images of the Holiday Station Store robbery to see if the public could identify the robber.

According to police, the robber brandished a pump action sawed-off shotgun and left with the till’s cash drawer.

Only $201 was in the drawer.

Police continue to look for a person about five feet tall, maybe 5’1” or 5’2”, wearing a Michael Jordan hooded sweatshirt.
