BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WMBF)-At approximately 10:55pm Tuesday evening, the Brunswick County 911 Center received a call in reference to an armed robbery at the Exxon Kangaroo gas station, located at 927 Seaside Road in Ocean Isle Beach.

Detectives are searching for a suspect described as a young, thin, black male, around 5'5" tall wearing a blue short sleeve shirt, black or blue pants with design on the back pocket and possibly white tennis shoes.

He also entered the store with a red bandana covering his face and head. He is possibly the passenger in a blue 2005 Altima with TN tag P0034C.
