Man robs Elizabethton store, gets away with undisclosed amount of money

From Staff Reports

   Officers and Investigators from the Elizabethton Police Department are looking for a male subject who robbed a local convenience store Monday night.
   According to reports, police were notified that just minutes after 10 p.m., someone had robbed the Holiday Market, 2226 W. G St., and had taken an undisclosed amount of money.
   An employee of the store, Ruby Clark, reported to EPD PTL Jennifer Mayberry that the suspect entered the store, leaned over the counter, and said something to her that she could not understand.
   "She advised that when she stepped closer to the suspect he stated 'Give me all of your money. Don't be stupid,'" Mayberry stated in her report. At that time, Clark asked the suspect to wait a minute to which he replied, "You ain't got a minute. Don't be stupid," the report states.
   Clark told police that she then took the money out of the register tray and handed it to the suspect. She reported that the suspect then said "Give me the bag; don't be stupid; I want the bag." According to the report, the bag contained the store's bank deposit. The clerk gave the suspect the bag, and he left the store.
   The suspect is described as a white male wearing a blue flannel jacket, blue jeans, a white or tan ball cap with some type of netting that covered his face and white or tan gloves. The suspect fled the store on foot and went around the west side of the building.
   Investigators are currently looking at possible leads in the case. Anyone with information about the incident should contact the Elizabethton Police Department at 542-4141.
