LIMERICK — The armed man who held up the Limerick Village Variety earlier this week remained at large on Friday, and York County Sheriff William L. King Jr. said the agency is still soliciting input from the public.

The man walked into the store at 32 Main St, on Monday at about 9:20 a.m., took a cold drink to the counter and then allegedly drew a handgun and demanded money from the clerk. He was given an undisclosed sum and ran away in an unknown direction of travel, authorities said.

No one was hurt in the robbery.

King said the sheriff’s office is still following up on leads.

“The detectives bureau is dedicated to solving this,” King said on Friday.

Anyone with information is urged to call the sheriff’s office at 324-1113.

“Someone’s got to know this guy,” the sheriff said.

A still photo taken from a video surveillance camera shows a thin-faced individual wearing sunglasses and a watch cap with a hood pulled over it.

Limerick Village Variety owner Monique Holcomb said she and another worker were tending to tasks elsewhere in the store when the robbery took place and didn’t know it had transpired until the clerk told her to call 911.

She said this is the first incident of its kind  in the 10 years she has owned the business.

The sheriff has previously said the agency has been working with Maine State Police and Oxford County Sheriff’s Office on the case but would not comment on whether he believes the incident is connected to the armed robbery of the Route 160 Ice Cream Shop in Hiram on May 9.
