Matthews police are looking for a man wanted in connection with an armed robbery Sunday at a discount club store.

The robbery was reported about 6 p.m. at the Costco store in the Sycamore Commons shopping center, on Matthews Township Parkway near East Independence Boulevard.

Police say the man asked employees to see jewelry that was in a locked viewing case. The man then pulled a gun on the clerks, police say, and ordered them to fill a bag with jewelry. After getting the jewelry, the man fled.

Police describe the man was a light-skinned black male, about 6 feet to 6-2 tall, of thin build. He was between 20 and 30 years old and was wearing a tan-colored ball cap, a reddish-collared shirt with a design on it, khaki shorts, and dark-colored shoes.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Matthews police Detective Brian Ridge, at 704-847-1647.
