EAST WENATCHEE — A masked robber made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from a Grant Road convenience store early this morning.
An investigation continues today into the 2 a.m. robbery at the Food and Fuel store at 96 Grant Road, said Detective Darin Darnell of the East Wenatchee Police Department.
No injuries were reported.
Darnell said the white male — dressed in dark knit cap, partial mask, blue hooded sweatshirt, brown pants and boots — approached the male clerk with a hand tucked in a pocket.
“We believe he wanted to insinuate he was armed, whether he was or not,” Darnell said.
The suspect demanded money and the male clerk opened the register and gave cash to the robber.
Witnesses outside the store reported the man got into a dark pickup truck, possibly a model from the 1980s, and headed south on Rock Island Road.
