SPENCER Rowan County authorities are looking for a man who they say tried to rob a convenience store earlier this week.
The incident took place Tuesday at a Rushco convenience store in the 1100 block of Long Ferry Road, near Interstate 85 in the northern part of Rowan county.
Sheriff’s office investigations say a man entered the store and waited for several customers to leave. The clerk said the man then approached the counter with two drinks.
He put the drinks on the counter, the clerk said, then put his hands into his waist band and ordered the clerk to hand over all the money in the cash register. When the clerk refused, investigators say, the man fled.
Investigators say the man was driving a silver-colored car and got on Long Ferry Road in the direction of Interstate 85.
Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact the sheriff’s Lt. Chad Moose, 704-216-8687, or Det. Adam Loflin, 704-216-8686.
