Danville police and deputies from the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Valley station have suspended their search for a man who robbed the Town & Country Cleaners, 3204 Danville Blvd. in Alamo Friday.

Alamo residents lit up the NEWS24-680 Tip Line as officers and a police canine team flooded into the area in search of the armed robber.
The store clerk was not harmed during the robbery.
