Johnson City police were looking for a man who stashed his disguise and gun behind the store he held up over the weekend.

It happened at Bays Mart 27, 801 S. Roan St., around 5:20 p.m. Saturday.

The store clerk told police a white man entered the store wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt. He had the hood on and a black and white bandana covering his face.
