BROADALBIN -- The Fulton County Sheriff's Office is investigating a reported larceny at the Broadalbin Village Market on North Main Street.

According to Fulton County Undersheriff Kevin Lenihan, deputies were dispatched to the market at approximately 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Broadalbin Village Police also responded to the scene.

Lenihan said the suspect, described as a black male, entered the market and proceeded to cause a distraction in the rear of the store. With the clerk preoccupied with the distraction, the suspect moved to the front of the store, where the office is located, and picked up the night deposit bag.

He then left the scene.

Lenihan said it is not yet clear how the suspect knew where to find the deposit bag.

He was last seen, Lenihan said, getting into a "white station wagon-type vehicle."

The exact amount of money stolen has yet to be determined, Lenihan said, but it is believed to be in excess of $1,000.

Despite initial reports, Lenihan said the incident was not an armed robbery and there were no injuries or weapons involved.

"They don't determine it until the officer gets at the scene," Lenihan said. "It was determined to be just a larceny.

"There was no force used in the larceny at all," he said.

The investigation remains ongoing.
