Lawrence police are looking for a man who they say tried to make off with cash from the register at the Pool Room, 925 Iowa St., at the end of his first shift as an employee there.
Police were called to the bar at 11:56 p.m. on Monday. The employee, not named by police, left the bar with $490 from the register before he was stopped by employees outside, according to Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman.
McKinley said the suspect turned over the cash before "fleeing into the night."
