Monroe County sheriff’s deputies are tracking down precious few leads after a man walked into the Par-Mar Chevron station on Ohio 7 with a shotgun and demanded money at about midnight Monday.

Authorities are reviewing surveillance video of the incident in an attempt to identify the robber, who made off with between $200 and $400, according to sheriff’s Lt. Tracy Truax.

Truax said deputies are looking for a man about five feet, 11 inches tall with blue eyes, according to a description by the clerk working at the time of the incident.

He was wearing camoflauge pants and a bandanna covering most of his face.

According to Truax, he was armed with a 12-gauge shotgun. No one was hurt, including another customer who was shopping there when the robbery occurred.

“There was an additional customer in the store,” Truax said. “His statement pretty much confirms what the clerk had.”

Also captured on the surveillance video was the robber’s likely getaway car, a silver sport utility vehicle leaving the station. However, the make, model, and license plate information for that vehicle remain unknown.

In the meantime, deputies will continue to work with what they have to identify the robber.

“We’re just trying to do some follow-up interviews. . . and go from there,” said Truax.

Truax said anyone with information related to the robbery should call the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department as soon as possible at 740-472-1612.
