Grant County authorities are searching for a man who tried to hold up a convenience store in Sweetser early Tuesday, but who apparently became frustrated when he couldn’t find anybody in the store.
The “Chronicle-Tribune” reports a man wearing a mask over part of his face and wielding a shotgun walked into the Marathon on highway 18 in Sweetser just after midnight early Tuesday morning, apparently bent on robbing the store.
Investigators say the clerk was in the back room at the time and no one else was inside the store. Security cameras show the would-be robber apparently became frustrated and left the store without taking anything.
No arrests have yet been made, but Grant County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating.
