  Police say the suspect walked into the Valley Dairy Store at North 5th Street and Gateway Drive at 9:45 Sunday night, carrying a fake pistol that looked very realistic. He demanded money from the clerk and left the store with less than five-hundred dollars.

  The ski mask and fake pistol were found in the area, where the man got into a pickup and drove away.
