A masked, possibly armed, man was caught on video robbing the Alston Country Store and Video in Rainier Saturday night.
The crime occurred around 7 p.m. on Dec. 17 as a store clerk reported a thin man in his late teens to early 20s walked into the building and demanded money. The suspect, wearing a black knit mask, a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark blue pants, reportedly said he had a gun, but none was seen during the robbery.
He was last spotted walking toward the Alston Church on Highway 30.
A surveillance camera caught the suspect from multiple angles.
