PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man held up a Plaid Pantry store in Beaverton with chemical cleaner, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect made off with less than $50.

Police were dispatched after the suspect fled and were unsuccessful in locating the man after a search involving a K9 unit.

No injuries were reported.

This is an active investigation.
