PORT ANGELES — A man wearing a black trench coat walked into the Jack in the Box restaurant and stole cash from a cash register Tuesday night, Port Angeles police said.

Officers are asking the public to be on the lookout for the thief — a white man with glasses and medium-length light-brown hair.

Deputy Police Chief Brian Smith said restaurant employees reported that the man, between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall, walked into the restaurant at the corner of Race and Front streets at about 10 p.m., opened a cash register and ran away with a undisclosed amount of cash.

“I think it happened very quickly,” Smith said.

The man, who was also described as having a “5 o'clock shadow,” then ran south on Race Street, Smith said.

No threats, weapon

The man did not have a weapon and made no threats against employees, Smith added, though the thief appeared to know how to work the cash register.

Smith said police had no evidence that the man had worked at the Jack in the Box.

Both police and Clallam County sheriff's deputies responded to the call.

Anyone with information on the man or the incident is urged to phone the police business line at 360-452-4545.
