Robber in Halloween mask strikes store

Police in Somerset are looking for a man who held up a Cash Express store, on Highway 27 Thursday morning.

The robbery happened about 10:00 AM when police say a man wearing a halloween mask entered the business and demanded cash.

Police say the robber took some employees to a back room, and ordered another to open the safe and register.

The suspect was able to get away, but on his way out, police say he dropped some of the money.

"It was obvious they had been through something very traumatic. They were shaking. From them filling out witness statements and answering some of our questions, it was very apparent, they were shook up," says Detective Chris Gates, with Somerset Police.

Police say the suspect was tall and thin, and was hearing a dark sweatshirt and blue jeans.
