Rome Police are investigating a weekend armed robbery at the Dean Avenue EZ Mart.

The clerk told the officer that she had stepped outside to have a cigarette at around 6:30 a.m. Saturday, when a man wearing a hoodie put a gun to her back and told her to get back into the store.

The suspect then demanded money and made the clerk empty out all the cash registers.

The suspect then ran out of the store with around $3,000.

Surveillance video showed the man getting into a dark-colored passenger vehicle on East 19th Street at the Highway 27 underpass.
