SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Schenectady police followed tips, tracking a robbery suspect to a home, but came up empty handed. Police said an armed man robbed the Dollar General store on Broadway around 6:00 p.m. Monday. A customer who was inside the store at the time called it in.
Minutes later, police said they received another call that the robber had gone into a home on Hegeman Street, but that's where the trail ended.
"Address was locked down. Special Operations Squad was dispatched, cleared the residence, unable to locate anybody and now it's being investigated by the detective division," said Lt. Mark McCracken, Schenectady police.
Police said the robber got away with some cash, but they're not saying how much. No one was hurt in the robbery.
