REDDING, Calif. -

Redding Police are looking for the man who robbed a resale shop at gunpoint.

It happened Tuesday morning around 10 a.m. at Amazing Finds at 3551 South Market Street near Wyndham Lane in Redding.

The employee who was working when the store was robbed reported that she was confronted by a male subject at the counter who pointed a black handgun at her and demanded the money from the register.

The suspect then fled out of the business and was last seen running westbound. Redding Police officers and a California Highway Patrol fixed wing aircraft conducted an extensive search of the area, but did not locate the suspect.

The suspect was described as a white male adult, in his 20s, approximately six feet tall, slender build and unknown hair color.

He was last seen wearing dark denim jeans and a black hoodie pulled down to his eyes. He had visible flames or similar type tattoos on his neck and tattoos on his chin.

Anyone with any information regarding this case is asked to contact the Redding Police Department at 225-4200.
