The Sandwich Police Department responded to an armed robbery at the Sandwich Mart and Spirits on Route 6A at 9:45 PM on Saturday, December 26

"During the course of the investigation, it has been determined the firearm was a replica," the police press release said. 

The suspect ordered the cashier to empty the register while pointing the replica firearm at him and then fled on foot, police said. 

Police have identified the subject as a male, possibly in his 40s, with dark brown or black hair and a thick build. He is approximately 5 feet, 7 inches tall, the release said. 

A Barnstable County Sheriff's Office K-9 unit responded to the scene, but the tracking was unsuccessful. 

Sandwich police are investigating the robbery. Anyone with information should contact Officer Michael Wood at 508-888-1212.
