A gas station in southwest suburban Orland Park was robbed at gunpoint more than a week ago and police have now released video surveillance photos of a suspect.

About 11:10 p.m. on Aug. 22, a man walked into the Mobil station at 11200 W. 183rd St. and asked for the price of a carton of Newport cigarettes, according to Orland Park police.

When the cashier began looking up the price, the suspect pulled a black handgun from his waistband and ordered the cashier to give him all the Newports and all the money, police said. He got away with about 12 cartons of cigarettes and a small amount of cash from the register.

The suspect got into a newer model, silver four-door Chevrolet Impala, driven by another person and they headed northbound on Wolf Road, then eastbound on 183rd, police said.

The cashier was not hurt and called 911 as soon as the suspect left the store.

The suspect is described as a black man about 27, between 6-foot and 6-foot-3, 200-230 pounds with short black hair, brown eyes and thin mustache.

Anyone with information should call police at (708) 349-4111.
