RACINE — A 57-year-old man allegedly tried to rob Lee’s Deli, 2615 Washington Ave., Wednesday.
Scott C. Hemphill, of the 1600 block of Flett Ave., Racine, was charged with a felony count of attempted armed robbery and a misdemeanor count of carrying a concealed weapon.
According to a criminal complaint:
On Wednesday, officers were sent to Lee’s Deli at 2615 Washington Ave. for a robbery in progress.
Officers arrived and spoke to employees who said a man came into the store, selected chips and a soda and placed them on the counter, but then, as he was being rung up, pulled out a gun and pointed it at the cashier. He was waving the handgun and racked it. He eventually fled the store.
Officers located the man in a red Ford Escape, removing clothes and throwing them in the car. The man was identified as Hemphill and was taken into custody. He admitted to having a gun in the glovebox, and it was later learned the gun was reported stolen out of Shelby County, Tennessee. Hemphill does not have a valid concealed carry license.
