WEATHERSFIELD, Vt. (AP) - Vermont state police are investigating the robbery of a convenience store as the clerk was preparing to close.
Police say a white male wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a mask walked into the Circle K convenience store just off Interstate 91 in Weathersfield at about 11 p.m. Thursday.
The man kept his right hand in his pocket during the robbery but did not brandish a weapon.
Police say the suspect made off with a small amount of cash and fled on foot. A K-9 team tracked him a short distance but did not catch up with him.
Investigators are reviewing store surveillance video and ask that anyone with information on the case call the Rockingham state police barracks at 802-875-2112.
