It was the second time a robbery occurred at the store.

On Oct. 9, 2017, a man walked into the store as it was opening about 9 a.m. and handed the clerk a note saying, “This is a robbery.”

The clerk opened up the register, gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash, and he left the store on foot.
