Suffolk County police and Crime Stoppers are looking for a man who drove an all-terrain vehicle to a Yaphank gas station and robbed it using a handgun.

Police on Monday released photographs of the suspect, taken from video surveillance at the Shell station at 482 Patchogue Yaphank Rd.

Shortly before 4 p.m. on Aug. 11, the driver entered the station, displayed what appeared to be a handgun, and demanded cash.

The clerk gave the man an unspecified amount of money from the cash register, and the man drove off in his green ATV with light-colored rims, police said.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-8477. All information will be kept confidential.
