Mexico robbery investigation continues


MEXICO— No arrests have been made yet in the armed robbery of the Mexico One Stop on March 28, but police are working on several leads provided by local residents.

Sgt. Roy Hodsdon said Wednesday that informational calls made to the department last week provided a number of leads.

“We’re getting closer to an arrest,” he said.

A white male used what is believed to be a 9 mm gun to hold up the convenience store early that Sunday morning. The clerk handed over all the cash in the register, which was estimated at $254. She was not hurt. The man fled on foot.

Although a security camera recorded the act, the man’s face was covered with a scarf.

The armed robbery was the first for the town in several years.
