The Big Otter Go-Mart was robbed early yesterday morning by a man wearing a white hood and carrying a handgun.

A deliveryman for the Charleston Gazette enroute to Clarksburg stopped at the store near the I-79 exit and was ushured into a back room and also robbed by the man.

Clay County Deputy Sheriff Jeff Rider said the female clerk gave the robber an undisclosed amount of cash at 12:15 a.m. Monday, after which he told them not to follow him.

The Gazette carrier, Brian Massey, was dropping papers for the Calhoun-Clay area when he walked in on the hold-up. Neither victim could identify the suspect nor did they see a vehicle.
