State police are investigating a Tuesday evening armed robbery at the Kangaroo Express Exxon station in Bastian.
According to Bland County Sheriff Jason Ramsey, a clerk at the business -- located off Interstate 77 exit 58 -- said a man wearing a wig, glasses and a bandanna-type mask walked into the business, pulled a gun on her and told her to put money in a bag. She wasn’t injured, and police got the 911 call at 9:35 p.m.
After getting cash, the man left the store, but officers couldn’t tell from surveillance footage whether he escaped into an awaiting vehicle, Ramsey said.
A tracking dog was brought in but was unable to locate the suspect.
