MPD: Madison gas station clerk sees masked thief on surveillance go behind counter, steal cash box

MADISON, Wis. - A masked thief stole money from an east Madison gas station Thursday afternoon, police said. 

The Madison Police Department said an employee at the Amoco station on Williamson Street told police he was in a backroom about 4 p.m. stocking shelves and monitoring the front of the business via a surveillance camera.

While doing so, he saw a man enter, go behind the counter and take off, the report said. When the clerk came out to investigate, he noticed money from a cash box, which had been beneath the counter, was now missing.

The clerk told police the thief was about 6 feet, 4 inches tall and was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and had something covering his nose and mouth.
