A man shopping for boots Thursday night left the store with more than just footwear.
Police responded to a call about an armed robbery at The Shoe Department at University Place on S.C. 9 Bypass.
Two store workers told police that a man came inside the store about 7:30 p.m. and began looking at shoes. He picked up two pairs of Timberland boots, took them to the counter and bought them, the report said.
When the workers opened the register, the man pulled out a pistol, cocked it and demanded money, according to a Lancaster Police Department incident report.
