One man is in custody following a Sunday afternoon armed robbery in Atlas, Illinois.
Pike County sheriff’s deputies say 27-year-old Christoper Yanczer of Rockport went into the Atlas Cafe, displayed a gun and demanded money from the clerk who refused to give him any cash. Authorities say Yanczer threatened to shoot the clerk if she did not comply and that the gun was actually a plastic toy hand gun.
Yanczer was taken to the Pike County, Illinois Jail.
