Gun used in robbery

GREENFIELD — Police are looking for an armed robber after a man allegedly brandished a pistol and made off with a small sum of money from the Cumberland Farms gas station convenience store on Federal Street.

The clerk reported the robbery at 4:17 a.m., Sunday telling police he was just robbed a gunpoint by a man wearing a hooded shirt and holding a black handgun, who came into the store and said “give me your money,” then left on foot across Federal Street with a small amount of money, according to the police log.

Police searched the area with the help of a dog from the Montague Police Department.

Little information was available Sunday.

Store clerks had been told not to comment. Reached outside of work, Chief Robert Haigh Jr. said he had little information beyond what was in the police log at this time. He did say, however, police have no suspects.

The alleged robber is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a thin build and dark skin, possibly black or Hispanic, with a short scruffy beard and wearing a gray jacket with a black hood.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Greenfield Police Department at 413-773-5411.

Robbery with a firearm of any kind carries a minimum sentence of five years in state prison, 15 on subsequent offense.
