WARREN, Ohio -

Warren police are looking for a man who robbed Family Dollar employees at gunpoint but dropped most of the money in the snow. 

According to a police report, the suspect went into the back office of the Family Dollar around 10:00 pm Tuesday, where the store manager and an employee were counting money. 

The employees told police, the suspect came into the room and told them not to turn around or he would "blast them." 

The suspect, who was wearing a black hoodie with white writing on the front, gray sweatpants, and black shoes, took $1,892 and fled. 

While searching the area, police recovered $1,560 from the snow where the suspect had fled.  

The store manager told police that $332 was still missing and that the suspect had to have been hiding somewhere in the store because they had locked all the doors and checked the store when closing.

Police took a $50 as evidence from the money they found in the snow as appeared to have wet blood on it, and are reviewing video of the incident.
