A Gallatin teenager is charged with aggravated robbery after police say he stole two packages of cigarettes from a local convenience store at gunpoint last week.
The robbery occurred shortly before 3 a.m. on July 24 after the white male suspect walked up to the G & G Market’s drive-thru window at 348 Red River Road and attempted to buy the cigarettes, according to an arrest affidavit.
“The male’s credit card denied the purchase and the male then brandished a handgun at the clerk stating, ‘Give me all the [expletive] cash,’” Investigator Katie Hope wrote in the affidavit. “(The clerk) then fled towards the other side of the store, afraid that the male would follow him through the window.”
The suspect fled the scene on foot and was later identified as 18-year-old Marc Austin Walker by his credit card that was left behind, according to police. No one was injured during the robbery, which was captured on video by the store’s security cameras.
The clerk later positively identified Walker from a six-photo lineup and described the him as a “new regular” at the business.
Walker was arrested last week and charged with aggravated robbery and possession of a firearm during a dangerous felony. He is scheduled to appear in Sumner County General Sessions Court on Aug. 7.
