You guys use any old picture of a 7-Eleven? I'm not even sure that's in Commack. Is there any description of this suspect?

But the one that was robbed is the new one in Commack, by Pet Den?

Sorry for the confusion everyone. Rich is correct, the store in the Pet Den shopping center was the one robbed. I went out a snapped a few photos of it this morning, so the photos up there now are of the actual store. Police did not provide a description of the suspect, but I will keep reaching out to them to try to get it. Kaitlyn
