Authorities are asking for help identifying a Carpinteria robbery suspect.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office says the robbery happened in the early afternoon of Sept. 23 at the T-Mobile store in Casitas Plaza.

The man was gone by the time authorities arrived, which they say was only minutes later.

The sheriff’s office on Monday released photos of the alleged robber’s tattoos and vehicle, described as a white Ford Flex with a sunroof.
