St. Albans police search for armed robber

Posted: Updated:

St. Albans police are on the hunt for an armed robber who targeted a convenience store.

Police say at about 9:45 p.m. Monday, a man entered the South Main Grocery and displayed a weapon. He left the store with an undisclosed amount.

Police say this store has been hit many times before and last time, the suspect was caught. But police say the owner is getting fed up.

"It's a business that's open all the time. And it's the time of night. I believe that people are more apt to do these types of things," St. Albans Police Sgt. Keith McMahon said. "And this is one of the businesses that's open this time of night. There's not as much traffic here as there is in other parts of town."

Police say the robber is heavyset, in his mid-to-late 20s, with brown or reddish-brown facial hair. He was wearing a dark heavy coat, face mask and dark pants. Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Albans Police at 802-524-2166.
