Police said they arrested a Maryland man who robbed a convenience store in southern York County but ran off before he got the cash.
Michael Scott Reed, 23, of Manchester, was taken into custody shortly after the incident Thursday morning at the C&S store in the 8100 block of Blooming Grove Road in Codorus Township, according to state police in York.
Police said Reed at 7 a.m. walked around the store, picked up some items, then wrote a note demanding that the clerk put money in a bag.
The clerk told Reed there was no cash in the register. She then yelled to the store manager to bring some money because they were being robbed, police said.
Reed grabbed the note and fled the store empty handed, police said.
