Investigation: Centre

Centre Police are investigating a report of an odd encounter between a man and a clerk on-duty at the Centre Grub Mart on Saturday morning. An unidentified male entered the store between 10:45 and 11:05am, and began making small talk with the store employee – first asking for change for a $100 bill – then reportedly saying "…I have a gun and I’m going to rob you." The employee told the man "That’s not funny" and a customer behind the individual spoke up and at that point, the man walked out the door. The man was described as being about six feet tall, wearing a pullover jacket and a red t-shirt along with a ball cap. He was seen getting into a 2005 to 2007 burgundy Chevy Malibu with two other individuals inside. Anyone with any information regarding the incident should contact the Centre Police Department at 256-927-3661.
