Gunman robs parts store in Lima, flees with cash

LIMA, Ohio — A man dressed in black held up the Advance Auto Parts store on West North Street early yesterday, just after the business opened.

Lima police Sgt. Tony Swygart said the suspect went to the front counter at 9:25 a.m., displayed a handgun to the clerks, and demanded money. The man then left the store with an unknown amount of money.

No injuries were reported, and authorities were continuing yesterday to search for the suspect.
