GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County deputies investigated a robbery Tuesday night after a man made a store clerk fill up a backpack with cash.

Lt. Tim Ridgeway, of the Greenville County Sheriff's Office, said the robbery happened just before midnight at the Spinx gas station at the corner of Pelham Road and SC 14.

Ridgeway said the robber, dressed in all black clothes, stood in the parking lot for a few minutes before entering the store, approaching the clerk, handing over the backpack for her to fill up with all of the cash from the register.

Ridgeway said the robber then made the clerk sit on the ground behind the counter while he ran away.

Search dogs were brought in but Ridgeway said they lost the man's scent.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 864-23-CRIME.
