A Cedar Rapids man has been accused of robbing Shelton's Grocery in Swisher. Austin Strub was charged June 23 with second-degree robbery.
According to a Johnson County Sheriff's Office complaint, Strub showed the owner of Shelton's Grocery a note that said, "Empty the drawer and no one gets hurt" and he claimed he had a gun.
After a short struggle between Strub and the owner, Strub fled with groceries he had not paid for, the complaint said.
