POCOMOKE CITY, Md. - A Pocomoke City man is being held without bond, after allegedly robbing a Pocomoke City store at gunpoint.

The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation says on Tuesday, around 9:40 PM, a masked gunman went into the Duck Inn Convenience Store, on Lynnhaven Drive, and pointed a gun at the clerk. According to the report, the gunman then moved behind the counter, ordered the employee onto the floor, while he took cash from the register, and stuffed it into his pants.

When a second employee came up from the back of the store, Police say the suspect made them open the Maryland State Lottery cash register, which he then took the cash out of, and also put in his pants. The suspect reportedly made the second employee get onto the ground, before he fled through the front door of the store.

During the investigation, while officers were reviewing surveillance footage, an officer apparently recognized the suspect as Kevin Presco, the husband of one of the employees. Police say a little while later, Presco arrived at the store, to reportedly pick up his wife from work, and Police detained and questioned him, but Presco was apparently uncooperative. Authorities say they searched Presco's home and vehicle, and found evidence of the crime in both places.

Presco is charged with armed robbery, 1st and 2nd degree assault, reckless endangerment, handgun on person, verbal extortion/threat of injury, and theft over $1,000 $10,000. He is now being held at the Worcester County Jail to be held without bond.
