Henderson police are searching for a suspect who posed as a construction worker while robbing a business in broad daylight.

The HPD said they were called to a Cricket Wireless store located at 1405 W. Sunset Rd., near Stephanie Street, at about 11:50 a.m. on Oct. 10 with reports of a robbery.

A man claiming to be a construction worker informed an employee at the store that he needed to check the gas, according to Henderson police.

No injuries were reported in the incident and the thief took an undisclosed amount of cash from the business.
