The Fayetteville Police Department is trying to identify a woman seen carrying a rifle in surveillance photos during a robbery.

Police say the woman came in carrying a large military-style long gun and demanded cell phones from a clerk.



She then fled in a dark blue Mazda.

Police say the woman was in the store on Sunday irate about a cellphone that wasn't shipped to her. Store employees couldn't help her.

Less than 24 hours she returned with the rifle.
