BURLEY, Idaho -- Authorities say a man wearing a teal colored ski mask with a picture of a duck bill robbed a gas station in Burley on Wednesday.

Cassia County Sheriff's deputies recently recovered the mask and are now looking for its owner. They describe the man as approximately 5-foot-6 with a slender to medium build, wearing a blue long-sleeved shirt or sweater, and gloves at the time of the robbery.

They say the masked man robbed the Quik Pik convenience store at gunpoint on Main Street in Burley just before 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Deputies report the man left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was hurt and no customers were in the store at the time.

Deputy Sheriff George Warrel said the man's unique mask may be the key to identifying him.

It was teal colored mask with a distinct face, Warrel said. Somebody might recognize him.

Deputies found the mask was alongside the road about one-quarter of a mile from the robbery.

Anyone with information regarding the mask or the robbery should call the Cassia County Sheriff's Office Investigations Division at 208-878-9360 or Dispatch at 208-878-2251.
