Deputies: Robber upset at lack of cash demands smokes

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said a man who held up a Spartanburg County store Thursday night became upset when he found only a few dollars in the register, so he stole some cigarettes instead.

Spartanburg County deputies said the man robbed the Li'l Cricket store on Boiling Springs Road about 11:35 p.m.

A 5'5" tall man wearing a ski mask entered the store, pulled out a gun and demanded money from the clerk, and told the clerk he wouldn't hurt her if she gave him all her money, deputies said.

But there was only a few dollars inside cash register, deputies said. The robber then demanded all of the cartons of Newport cigarettes, so the clerk put about eight cartons in a shopping bag for him, deputies said.

Deputies tried tracking the man to no avail.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
