Police are looking for a man who robbed a check-cashing business with a screwdriver Friday, the Fresno Police Department said.

Rodolfo Barron, 50, went into Advance America Check Cashing at 4195 E. Belmont Ave. Before robbing the business, he attempted to open an account using his real California’s drivers license and social security card, police said.

His application was denied.

Barron left and came back in with a 6-inch bladed screwdriver and demanded money, police said.

After getting $1,700, he drove off in his 4-door, gray Chevrolet Malibu. The license plate number is 7MJC170.

Barron, who is currently on parole for a home invasion robbery and for selling PCP, was released from prison in November after serving 14 years, police said.

Anyone with information on Rodolfo should call detective Donnie Dinnell at 559-621-6334 or Crime Stoppers at 559-498-7867.
