     VSP Troopers arrived from both the Lamoille and Williston barracks and the scene was secured with the assistance of the Lamoille County Sheriff's Department.  A K-9 unit was called in to track the robber, who fled on foot easterly, towards School Street, but they were unable to find him.
     According to the press release, Cambridge Elementary School was immediately notified and troopers went to the school to meet with the staff. School had been released by the time of the robbery, although there were some students around as after school activities were taking place. The press release states, "it was determined that there was no direct threat to the school."
     The suspect is described as a white male about 5'6” with a slender build.  The suspect was wearing a black North Face jacket with a dark hoodie, gray jeans, black or dark colored sneakers, gloves and a partial face mask.
     Anyone with any information about the robbery is asked to call Vermont State Police Detective Sergeant Todd Baxter at 635-7036.
