"He comes straight into the store, walks to the cash register, pretends to buy something and then robs them with a handgun," said St. Clair police Lt. Gary Crandall. "He doesn't walk around the store and really wasn't communicating much with anybody."

There were no reported injuries, but police are concerned he could strike again.
