The robbery reportedly took place Oct. 6, at about 7:39 p.m., when Croft allegedly entered the Hess Express and asked the store clerk for change. After the clerk opened the cash register, "the suspect reached into the register draw, placing the clerk in fear, and removed an undisclosed amount” of money, "then fled the scene on foot," according to the sheriff's report.
Surveillance video caught the robber in action and was posted on YouTube. Brandon Patch also published the video along with a request for tips from the public. The video is attached to this post as well.
