HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A crook robbed a Tennessee Valley grocery store, but he didn't use a gun or a knife.

His weapon was made of paper, green paper with a picture of George Washington on  it.

And it's your chance to earn several pictures of past presidents in this week's Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers.

Store surveillance video pictures show a robber Huntsville police say robbed the Kroger on South Parkway in Huntsville April 19th.

This guy's weapon of choice? He used a single, simple dollar bill.

He used it to pay for an item, and when the clerk opened the cash register, he forced him to the ground and grabbed a wad of cash.

Police say he jumped into a 2-door Pontiac or Nissan.

The robber was wearing a dark shirt, jeans and a camouflage cap.

The pictures aren't extremely clear, but they're good enough not to camouflage his appearance.

And if you know who he is, there's a wad of cash coming your way, in terms of up to $1,000 in reward money.

You can phone in your anonymous tips to 256-53-Crime. Or to text or e-mail an anonymous tip, head to our Crime Stoppers page for details.
