A Florence-area man was arrested by Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers Sunday morning following a reported Saturday evening armed robbery at the Cleawox Market south of Florence.
 
According to OSP Sergeant Ron Martin, on July 11, 2009 at approximately 7:35 p.m. OSP troopers responded to a reported armed robbery at the Cleawox Market involving a white male carrying what he claimed was a bomb. Upon entering the store the suspect demanded cash or he would detonate the device. The store clerk emptied the cash register and the suspect exited the store with an undetermined amount of cash. No one was injured.
