Police are hunting for an almost naked man who held up a South Carolina convenience store at gunpoint and escaped with only Reese’s peanut butter cups.
The man walked into a Scotchman store in Myrtle Beach just before midnight last Monday, Horry County Police Department say.
An officer responding to a 911 call spoke to a 51-year-old worker who “states a unknown black male came into the store naked with a gun in his hand and stole candy.”
The victim said that the suspect pointed the gun at him “while he was running toward the candy.” The robber stole “Reeses peanut butter cups and left,” reported police, who estimated that the suspect was between 18 and 30 years old
The suspect, the employee said, was naked except for a bandana over his face and a pair of black shoes.
The gunman, the witness added, did not say anything or approach him.
The responding officer, who was unable to locate the robber, reported that the convenience store “does have video surveillance but it was unavailable at the time of this report.”
Before releasing the incident report, officers redacted a description of the handgun as well as the dollar amount of the Reese’s stolen from the store.
