LANCASTER, Pa.– A jury convicted a man Tuesday after he robbed a city store at gun point last year.

Edgardo Alfaro-Rodriguez, 20, was convicted of felony robbery.

On December 2, 2015, Alfaro-Rodriguez robbed the Family Dollar Store on South Duke Street.

During the trial, witnesses, including a cashier, said that Alfaro-Rodriguez wore a mask and showed a gun while demanding cash from the register. After the clerk was unable to open the register, Alfaro-Rodriguez fled the scene with nothing.

Police were able to link him to the crime via a fingerprint he left at the scene.

Alfaro-Rodriguez’s bail was raised to $100,000 and he will face sentencing in the next few months.
