    Massachusetts authorities are searching for the man accused of robbing a convenience store in Canton while armed with a gun early Thursday morning.

    Canton police released a photo of the alleged suspect pointing the gun at a clerk at the 7-Eleven on Washington Street at 12:15 a.m.

    Police said the suspect entered the store and demanded cash, pointing his gun directly at the clerk on duty. Moments later, he left with an undetermined amount of money.

    "It was a quick thing, in and out," said Canton Police Chief Kenneth Berkowitz.

    New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    Authorities said the clerk behind the register was not hurt.

    "Obviously like any of us, he was shaken up," Berkowitz said.

    Police said during the robbery, the parking lot was fairly busy and they're hoping witnesses outside can help with the investigation. Authorities are also looking to see if the robbery is part of a larger scheme.

    "We do believe that it's connected to some other robberies, possibly in Brockton, and one in Mattapan that occurred last Sunday," Berkowitz said.

    The suspect was wearing a red mask, black clothing, and black gloves at the time of the robbery. Anyone with information is urged to contact Canton Police.
