Texas man charged with robbing store at gun point
TOPSHAM (WGME) -- A Texas man faces a robbery charge after police say he robbed a Topsham store after allegedly pointing a gun at a clerk inside a store not far from the police station.
Da Markus Ra Shun Griffin, 20, of Crockett, Texas was arrested Friday on a robbery charge after police were called to 7 Monument St. where the robbery took place.
Police were called to the store early Friday afternoon.
After a fruitless search of the area, tips from witnesses helped police determine a description of a vehicle, a white van, potentially involved in the robbery.
A traffic stop of a van with Texas plates on the Maine Turnpike by state police led to three men being taken back to Topsham.
Griffin was charged with robbery and taken to Two Bridges Regional Jail on $50,000 cash bail.
Griffin will make his first court appearance in August.
