The armed robbery took place at the Short Stop convenience store in Lakeview near Vass.
“On April 26, shortly after 9 pm, an unknown male subject entered the store located at 4396 U.S. 1, brandished a firearm to the store clerk, and demanded money from the cash register,” said Fields in a news release. “The unknown suspect, whose face was covered, left the store with an undisclosed amount of money.”
Fields said the suspect left the store “on foot in an unknown direction,” and no injuries were reported.
