Boise police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect in an armed holdup at a southeast Boise grocery store.

Detectives said the man walked into the Ranch Market on Warm Springs Ave.—not far from the Idaho Shakespeare Festival—flashed a weapon and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. The report did not indicate whether the suspect fled on foot or in a vehicle.

Police said the incident occurred around 6 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27. The suspect was described as a thin, light-skinned male in his mid 20s and between 5 feet, 8 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall. The store security camera snapped a pretty good picture of the suspect, which Boise police released to media late Saturday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS or non-emergency dispatch at 377-6790.
