A normal Saturday night at the Stewart market, turned strange around 8:30. That's when police say someone wearing a bill Clinton mask came walked in with a gun, demanding cash. Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau says the gun was fake. But the intentions of the man behind the mask were very real. He says 19-year-old Andrew Baugh, and two others, 19-year-old Cole Alexander Ziegler, and 18-year-old David Ayala planned the robbery.
Lt. Budreau says "all the individuals were acting together, they were all involved in the execution and they all had different roles."
Ayala on watch inside, Ziegler outside. Lt. Budreau says this was their first robbery but they had many more in planned.
"We realized they were planning other robberies with other targets, and this was one of the first ones they had done and luckily they got caught on their first one," says Budreau.
All three are behind bars on charges of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. A plan that Lt. Budreau says could have gone very wrong, if it went right.
"Somebody could get hurt somebody could intervene somebody could get shot. So we are very happy that we put a stop to at least these three," he says.
Medford Police say the men didn't get away with any money. And all will be facing the same charges regardless of which role they played.
