A 17-year-old Yorktown teen was due in on Tuesday to answer a criminal charge that he allegedly tried to leave a Shrub Oak gas station without paying for an item.

John A. Guckian was charged with third-degree robbery, a felony.

Police responded to the robbery at the Courtesy Shell gas station on Saturday at about 11:19 p.m. When a store employee attempted to stop Guckian, the defendant allegedly used "physical force" to retain possession of the merchandise, police said. They did not identify what item Guckian was allegedly trying to steal.

Guckian was taken into custody and transported to police headquarters. He was later released after a family member posted $7,500 bail on his behalf. He was scheduled to appear in on Sept. 4.

They never lock the ice box, leave the windshield washer and firewood laying outside and pay no attention to people stuffing candy and chips into their pockets. I've seen many folks make their coffee and grab the papers and just walk out. I'm surprised the place is still in business.
