Armed with a screwdriver, a man strolled into a loan office Thursday and stole cash from the drawers.

Police say he first demanded money from the clerks at E Z Check Loans, then walked behind the counter and took it himself.

A K-9 unit with the Colorado Springs Police Department searched the area of Academy and Maizeland, but was unable to track him down.

The suspect is described as a dark-complected black male, 5-foot-7, weighing 180 to 190 pounds. He was wearing glasses, a gray sweatshirt turned inside out and dark blue jeans. He was last seen heading east.
