The arrest warrant states the suspect walked into the store and told the employee at the register, "give me your money." He then showed a gun that was tucked into his pants, the employee told investigators.

The employee told the suspect, "hold on," and walked to the back where the cooler was, to the back door, and then ran out of the building, the arrest warrant states.

In surveillance footage, investigators saw the suspect take a few steps toward the employee, stop, and then turn to run out of the store. He didn't take anything on his way out, troopers said.

No one was injured, state police said.

Snowfly was held on a $150,000 bond.
