Santa Fe police are searching for a man involved in an armed robbery Tuesday afternoon at a south side variety store. 

Interim Chief Paul Joye said police responded to a Dollar Tree on Las Soleras Drive around noon after a caller told a dispatcher the store had been robbed.

An unidentified man took off with an unknown amount of money after brandishing a gun to the store clerk, Joye said. No shots were fired and no one was injured. 

Joye said police don't know if the individual is the same person who robbed a Dollar General on Sunday night on Airport Road.

I have a hard time believing police are really "searching" for the robber when there is apparently no description of the robber. What are they searching for? The headline for this story should not even use the word "searching." It should simply be, "Woman robbed at gunpoint by unknown person."
