The Clarkstown Police Department has arrested Jamie Bass, 41, of Nanuet, for an alleged robbery at the Four Seasons Cleaners, located at 214 Smith Road in Nanuet, Tuesday evening.

Responding patrol units interviewed the victim, a 61-year-old female from Nanuet, who told officers that a white male, about 50-years-old, entered the store, handed her a note demanding money or he would shoot  her and also telling her verbally that if she didn’t hand the money to him he would shoot her. The female victim gave the male suspect approximately $100.

The suspect fled the scene in a taxi waiting outside the store. A male witness standing outside of the location was able to copy the license plate number and gave the information to the detective on scene, which led investigators to 14 N. Pascack Rd in Nanuet.
