HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Police in Henderson say they're looking for a large man who used a motorized wheelchair to make his getaway after a jewelry store heist.

Henderson police spokeswoman Kathleen Richards said Thursday that no weapons were used and no one was hurt in the robbery last Friday afternoon at a store near Sunset Road and Stephanie Street.

Police released a security camera image of the man sitting in a wheelchair-style scooter.

He's described as being about 300 pounds, with a mustache and black-framed eyeglasses.

He's wearing a blue baseball cap, dark shirt and blue jeans.

Richards isn't saying what he took.
