Authorities have identified a suspect in the armed robbery of Rite Aid on Suder Avenue. Brian Lipp, 48, entered the store Monday afternoon and was observed wandering the aisles and talking to customers.

Published reports reveal he told victims he "went to a Michigan school and he didn't turn out so good."

He then pulled out a gun and grabbed an undisclosed amount of money from a register, telling a store clerk and customer not to "be heroes" while he escaped, according to the police report.

Police describe Lipp as a white male with grey hair, 5 feet, 11 inches tall, 190 pounds and a tribal tattoo on his left arm. During the robbery, he wore a Harley Davidson tank top.

He is believed to be in North Toledo driving a black GMC Jimmy with a missing back window.
