SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Shreveport Police are accusing a man of robbery after failing to get a discount on cigars he couldn't afford, and they are offering a reward for information leading to his arrest.

Police say the incident occurred about 9:20 a.m. on June 28 after a man walked into the National Liquor Bank to buy several cigars.

But the customer did not have enough money to complete the purchase, so "he began to haggle with the manager of the business in an attempt to get a discounted price," police say.

When the manager would not sell the cigars at a discount, the customer allegedly got upset. The manager ordered him to leave and threatened to call police. The customer allegedly stated that he would give the manager a reason to call the police.

Police say the man then grabbed the register and slid it toward the front of the counter "in what appeared to be an attempt to take the entire register." But the register was tied to the counter, so the man let go of the register and grabbed the manager's iPhone before leaving out the front door.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $400.00 reward for any information leading to the ID and arrest the suspect. Contact Crime Stoppers at 673-7373 or www.lockemup.org.
