KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Knox County Sheriff's Office Wednesday released a surveillance photo of the man suspected of robbing a North Knox County store Tuesday. He may have also robbed a nearby tobacco store late last month.

The Sunrise Market, 8802 Tazewell Pike, was robbed at gunpoint just before noon Tuesday. The suspect took an unknown amount of money and ran off.
