LACEY’S SPRING, Ala. (WHNT) – In Morgan County, authorities are searching for a man who tied up a gas station clerk with a zip tie and helped himself to the cash register.

Our news partner The Huntsville Times reports the man entered the Food Town on Highway 231 around 10:45 p.m. Monday, ordered the clerk face down on the ground and then he tied her up.

After the robber left, the clerk started to break free, but she noticed the robber coming back in the store because he left his gun.

After the second trip, the clerk was able to get up and call 911.
