NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (WDTN) – Clark County Sheriff’s deputies are on the lookout for a brazen thief who they said robbed a convenience store clerk at gunpoint.
Investigators were called to the Speedway convenience store at 1625 S. Dayton Lakeview Road just after midnight.
The male suspect displayed a silver handgun and demanded money. He left on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
“Our fear is this person is under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or both,” said Sheriff Gene Kelly. “We don’t know if this person might be needing money to purchase heroin. Again a person who would come in, with no mask, no disguise, they’re very desperate. They will use the weapon.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Clark County Sheriff’s Office at 937-328-2560.
