Benson Police are investigating the armed robbery of Bass Country Store. Officers responded to a 911 call at 6:36pm Sunday reporting a robbery at the business located on Highway 27 East.
According to police, the suspect entered the business armed with a handgun. The suspect approached an employee and held the gun to her head and shouted, “You put the money in the bag! Every Godda*n bit of it!”
The employee complied and placed an undisclosed amount of money in a camouflage bag the suspect was carrying. The gunman then fled on foot. Police believe he may have fled from the scene in a newer model white Cadillac, possibly a STS model, parked near the scene.
The gunman was described as a black male wearing a red hoodie with “Triton High School HOSA” on the front, a black undershirt, grey pants, green/tan shoes, black socks and a black face mask. The suspect was also wearing latex gloves. He also had an unknown tattoo on his right hand.
