MEXICO — Police are seeking a suspect who used a gun to rob a convenience store in the town of Mexico.

Mexico police chief James Theriault says the clerk at the Mexico One Stop was alone when the robbery occurred at about 6:20 a.m. Sunday.

Theriault says the suspect demanded money and told the clerk he didn’t want to hurt anyone.

Police say the suspect made off on foot with about $200 cash.

A police dog was called in, but it lost the suspect’s scent after a short pursuit.

The store had a video surveillance system, but the suspect’s face was covered with a bandanna.
