MISSOULA — Authorities are continuing to search for a person in connection with the Tuesday armed robbery of Blackjack Pizza.

The Missoula Police Department was called to the 2400 block of Brooks Street at approximately 12:25 p.m.

Missoula Police Department spokesman Sgt. Travis Welsh says the lone employee working was not hurt during the incident and was able to provide a description of the robber.

A white male adult entered the store while brandishing a small handgun, and demanded money from the cash register, according to Sgt. Welsh.

The suspect is approximately 5’8” tall and was wearing a black “puffy” coat, and a black ski mask. He was said to have no mustache, nor was he wearing glasses.

The suspect left on foot in an unknown direction of travel with an undisclosed amount of cash following the robbery.

Anyone with information that can help law enforcement identify the suspect -- or who witnessed the robbery and has not spoken to police -- is asked to contact Missoula Police Detective Guy Baker at (406) 396-3217.
