Armed Robbery Suspect Scared Off By Liquor Mart Employees

police lightsAn attempted robbery yielded nothing for the bad guy Sunday night in South Saint Joseph. Employees at King Hill Liquor Mart told police the suspect displayed a handgun when he entered at 9 pm and demanded money. But the store in the 47-hundred block of King Hill had been held up twice already this year and employees had had enough. Police say they “scared off” the would-be robber.

Nothing was taken and nobody was hurt. Police are now searching for the suspect, a man in dark clothing. Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 238.TIPS.
