Kaplan police are searching for the man who robbed a convenience store last weekend.
The incident took place Saturday around 10:15 p.m. at the Econo Mart on LA 14.
Police Chief Boyd Adams says the suspect entered store, grabbed a bottle of water from a cooler and approached the cashier's counter. According to Adams, the suspect then raised his shirt to expose a pistol in his waistband and demanded money.
The cashier ran into a back room and locked herself inside before calling police.
The suspect fled the scene after a customer walked into the store, scaring him.
The suspect got away only with the bottle of water.
