A Plymouth man is facing charges in connection with an armed robbery at a Corinna convenience store Friday morning.

Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says 43-year-old Mark Dunlop was taken into custody at his home early Friday afternoon. He's accused of walking into the A.E. Robinson convenience store at around 2:30 Friday morning. Officials say the robber brandished a gun and demanded money, fleeing on foot when the clerk ran into the office after refusing to hand over any cash.
