    A Massachusetts store owner is fed up after its latest robbery.

    The White Rose Pantry in Easton keeps getting robbed. It was hit again Sunday. Easton Police say a man in a black hood and surgical mask came in around 10 p.m. and demanded money.

    "The guy tells him he needs all the money in the register," owner Joseph Marawi recounted.

    Marawai says the employee was momentarily in shock, asking the suspect what he meant. Marawai says the man then pulled out a black and silver handgun and again demanded money.

    "Everyone knows this store, knows me, Joseph, as the owner," he said. "If they knew me, they would never do this to me."

    Investigators say the man stole more than $600, running from the store and into a waiting car.

    White Rose Pantry has been robbed three times and broken into many more. Marawai has increased security, added cameras and installed gates over this windows and doors.

    Police say they are still looking for the suspect and have increased patrols in the area.
