I was wondering if there had been an arrest in that weird Dairy Queen robbery where the guy pulled his shirt up over his head.

Not much new information on this one unfortunately, but police are still searching.

“(Detectives) did a receive a couple tips, but nothing that’s panned out,” said Medford police Lt. Mike Budreau.

As a quick refresher, a botched robbery attempt took place Sept. 17, at a Dairy Queen on West Main Street in Medford. Just before 9:30 a.m. a man walked through the doors with his shirt up over his face, his arms pulled through the shirt sleeves. The man claimed he had a gun and demanded money.

The suspect was described as white, 5-feet-8, and bald on top with hair on the sides of his head. He wore a plain, light-gray T-shirt that might have had some holes in the front, police said. He also wore green and gray camouflage-patterned shorts, gray shoes with red accents, and a bright red bandanna. An employee yelled for help, and the man fled.

Anyone with information about the case should contact Medford police at 541-770-4784. The case number is 20-15439.
