Crimetracker: Armed woman robs convenient store

KNOX COUNTY, Tenn.(WVLT)--A woman walked into the Super Stop Market on East Beaver Creek Drive around 8:30 last night. She pulled a gun and threatened to shoot the clerk if she didn't hand over the cash.

After taking cash from the drawer, the armed woman took off toward Emory Road.

She was wearing heavy makeup with blue eyeshadow, a pink or red toned t-shirt covered by a grey hoodie, tight blue jeans, and UGG style boots.
