FAIRFIELD — The Circle K convenience store on Center Road in Fairfield was robbed Friday morning by someone who was armed, police said.

The report of the armed robbery at the convenience store, which includes an Irving gasoline station, came in first at 3:25 a.m. and a second call came in three minutes later, according to Somerset County dispatch logs.

Fairfield police Chief Tom Gould said a weapon was involved, but it was not a firearm.

Gould said two men entered the store and one of them grabbed an undisclosed item and took off. A store clerk went outside to get a vehicle description and one of the men brandished a weapon and threatened the clerk, he said.

A store manager said Friday morning he was not allowed to discuss the robbery. He said no one was hurt.

Officer Casey Dugas responded to the armed robbery call and was assisted by Oakland and Skowhegan police. Fairfield police Capt. Paul St. Amand was called in and is continuing the investigation, Gould said.


The robber “fled in a maroon Subaru wagon heading east on Center Road.” Gould said. “At this time we are not disclosing what was taken or what kind of weapon was used.”

Gould said police have suspect names and are working to verify the identities of the two men. He said police think two women were in the car during the robbery.

The store at 204 Center Road, which is Route 139, is one of three Circle Ks in Fairfield. The others are on Main Street and Norridgewock Road.
