Do you know this guy? Help put him behind bars.

We’ve kicked back a few with friends at the Ace Tavern, a friendly neighborhood bar at 8868 Northeast Sandy Boulevard.

But on Tuesday, July 22, 2008, at 1:58 a.m. a “last-call customer” decided to use the Ace’s cash register as his personal ATM.

“The suspect, armed with a knife, entered the tavern through the rear entrance and immediately went into the bathroom,” police spokesperson, Catherine Kent told us.

The barkeep was getting ready to close for the evening.

“The suspect, armed with a knife, approached her and demanded money from the till. The suspect took the money and left on foot eastbound on NE Prescott Street,” Kent said.

Here’s a profile of Mr. Cool – great hat, eh?  He didn’t know – or didn’t care – if he was caught on camera. Let’s get this creep out of the neighborhood.

He’s probably a local.  The suspect is described as a white male, in his 40’s, 5’7″ to 5’10” tall, shoulder-length blond hair, brown eyes, and mustache.  He was wearing a light -colored or faded hat, a gray “Cowboys” sweatshirt, and blue jeans.

Here’s what to do …
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to a resolution in this case, and you remain anonymous.  Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
