Monroe County Sheriff's Detective Conway Mason said he spoke with an employee at Mountain View Market Sunday morning who said a man came in with his hand in his jacket pocket making it appear as if he had a gun.

The employee said the man demanded money from the register and she didn’t know if he actually had a gun in his pocket, she gave him the money from the register.

After some investigation, Mason said he was led in the direction of Casey Raymond Watson. Watson was found ay B & B Market on Reliance Road and after speaking with him, Mason said he believed Watson was the one who had robbed the store, though it didn't appear he had actually had a gun in his pocket.
