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.

Second-degree robbery is a Class-C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.
