Eastman Police were called to an armed robbery at the Hop-In convenience store on Oak Street at 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, April 12.
While other police and Dodge County sheriff’s units searched the area for the suspect, Eastman Police Officer Jason Park was told by the store clerk that she had been waiting on a customer at the counter when a masked black man carrying a firearm came through the front door.
The masked man began yelling orders to get on the ground. The clerk was holding a dollar bill in her hand and the masked man snatched it from her. He then went to the counter and opened the cash register.
