A man robbed the Chic 2 Charity thrift shop at 605 Washington St. Sunday night, according to Deputy Chief Robert Devine of the Stoughton Police Department.

The suspect grabbed a female employee as she was leaving the store at closing time, gestured as if he had a weapon, forced her back into the store and grabbed money, according to Devine.

Police tried to track the suspect down with a K9, but the search came up negative, and the matter remained under investigation as of Sunday night, the deputy chief said.

Devine said Stoughton police were responding to multiple incidents at the time of the robbery, and "that limited our resources."

At about the same time, police responded to Bob's Discount Furniture to investigate a bomb threat.

Chic 2 Charity is a thrift shop with "a boutique atmosphere," and its sales benefit a different non-profit organization every month, according to the store's Facebook page.

I read this one minutes later,Rob Devine commenting,This is evidence that the chief shastany statement on the mentally ill man at bobs furniture was another Lie from him,I met the guy who owns the chic to chic and now I feel bad for him,I've never seen more crime in my Life ALL Over the state and I have never seen so few marked cruisers on the streets making themselves present.I had a young police officer in Foxboro admit this recently,It felt good to hear the truth for a change.
