Woman flees after Dollar Store robbery attempt

Posted

Parker police are searching for a woman who attempted to rob the Dollar Tree store.

The woman entered the Dollar Tree, on the east side of Goodwill, around 9 p.m. Oct. 3, selected items from the shelves and demanded money when she approached the cash register. The woman did not show a weapon, but told Dollar Tree employees that a man outside the store would inflict harm if they did not comply.

The employees refused to give her money and the woman fled eastbound on foot. The suspect is described as a white female, 40-50 years old, approximately 5 feet, 1 inch, wearing all black, including one black glove. She also had yellow teeth, according to witnesses.

Parker Police Department Public Information Officer Doreen Jokerst said "unfortunately there is no video surveillance that would aid the investigation."

Officers searched the area and were unable to locate the woman. A Douglas County Sheriff's Office K-9 unit attempted to track the suspect and crime scene investigators responded to the scene.

Sgt. Andy Coleman said investigators will interview the victims and witnesses and release a sketch in the coming days. They do not believe there is any threat to the public.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect should call the Parker Police Department at 303-841-9800.
