SIDNEY, Mont. -

Police are looking for a 42-year-old robbery suspect who might be traveling through North Dakota after fleeing Sidney, Mont.
    
The man is identified as Colin Christopher Perel, who is accused of stealing about $34,000 from a convenience store where he has worked since November 2012. Police say they don't know if Perel is armed.
    
The Williston Herald reports that Sidney police got a complaint Jan. 22 that an off-duty employee emptied the two safes and the cash box from an ATM inside the ExxonMobil SuperPumper convenience store. Police say Perel is driving a red or maroon Honda Passport with the license plate ABU8851.
    
The newspaper reports that Sidney police have a warrant for Perel's arrest with a $50,000 bond.
    
People with information are asked to contact their local police.
