At about 9 pm Friday evening, the Big Apple store located on the Norridgewock Road in Fairfield Center was robbed. Witnesses say a slender younger male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and ski mask entered the store and displayed a silver semi-automatic hand gun and demanded the money from the cash drawer. They say the suspect ordered the cashier to put the money in his blue and silver back pack. The male subject left the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, North on the Norridgewock Road. According to Chief John Emery of the Fairfield Police Department the Kennebec County K-9 unit tracked the suspect to a parking lot of a near by apartment complex a short distance from the store. He says it is believed that the suspect fled in a vehicle, possibly a Silver or Tan f250 Ford PU with a yellow 4 wheeler in the back.
