Investigators say Cole is accused of trying to rob the store at gunpoint.

Police say although the would-be bandit demanded money from the store owner, he ran out of the business after a brief struggle.

Nothing was stolen in the incident, which happened around 10 a.m. Monday.

Detectives say some evidence was seized when police executed a search warrant at Cole’s residence.

Cole was being held in the Johnson City police lock-up pending his arraignment in village court.
