Atlanta, GA None —

Wanted:  Older WF with swollen cheeks.   

DeKalb County Police are looking for an armed robber with a unique look. 

Police say a white female held up a Walgreen's drugstore at 2320 North Druid Hills Road Monday, pulling out a handgun and demanding cash at a checkout counter.  Once she got the money, she took off.

Surveillance video captures an image of the woman, whom witnesses describe as 5'6" and about 60-70 years old.  DeKalb Police spokeswoman Mekka Parrish tells WSB that the clerk was able to describe

"Quite naturally for anyone, when a gun is pulled out, the amount of information that you gather is very limited," says Parrish.  "The one thing that we were able to ascertain...is that she had distinctive facial features--cheeks that were swollen and described as red." 

The woman is believed to have driven away in a light-colored tan or gold Jeep Liberty.

She was last seen wearing a baseball hat with a white and red "G" in the center, sunglasses, brown jacket and stone washed jeans.

Tipsters are asked to call the DeKalb Police Major Unit at (770) 724-7890.
