Greenfield police investigating armed robbery at JC’s Market Friday night
GREENFIELD — Police were investigating an alleged armed robbery at JC’s Market on Conway Street Friday night, but had nothing to report as of press time.
Shortly after 6 p.m., a female caller from the store told police she had been robbed at gunpoint by a white male, possibly in his 20s. He was described as wearing a black coat and white face mask and holding a black gun, possibly a .45 caliber handgun, according to Friday’s police log.
The caller said that the man “pointed a gun at her and demanded all the money in her drawer,” according to the police log.
Dispatchers said there was no one available to comment further until this morning.
The store, usually open to 10 p.m., closed early Friday.
The call came just three days after the Valley Mart convenience store, on Mill Street, also reported an armed robbery. Police in that case were seeking a skinny white male, about 5 feet, 7 inches, wearing a black hooded jacket with the hood pulled down and a white scarf over his face at the time of the robbery.
Under Massachusetts law, the use of a gun or a mask in the commission of a robbery carries a mandatory minimum five-year sentence on first offense.
