New Low: Dude Robs Goodwill Store

Phoenix police are looking for a guy who they say robbed a Goodwill Store in Phoenix earlier this month.

The suspect, police say, walked into the store at 3901 East Thunderbird Road in Phoenix on June 1, about 9:15 p.m., with a gun.

The suspect pulled his piece and ordered one of the employees to the floor as he forced another employee to show him to the safe.

The suspect cleaned out the safe and took off on foot.

No vehicle was seen.

If you're unfamiliar with the mission of Good Will, it's a non-profit organization designed to "provide job training, employment placement services, and other community-based programs for people who have a disability, lack education or job experience, or face employment challenges."

The organization is funded by a vast network of thrift stores -- like the one the suspect in this case robbed -- all over the country.

In other words, this guy stole from some of the neediest people in the country.

The suspect is described as a white male between the ages of 24 and 29, about 5-foot-8 inches tall, 160 pounds, with brown hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department.
