McClain allegedly told the clerk, “I need you to do me a favor. I need all the 20s and 10s” and “I’m loaded and I’ll hurt you if I have to.”
They were seen with two other males who police say have been identified, but are not being charged at this time.
Police were able to catch Garret after they put his picture on Facebook and the calls started coming in. With his picture on social media, Garret showed up at the Greensburg Police station and turned himself in.
McClain, however, remains on the run tonight and given his and Garret’s criminal history, he should be considered armed and dangerous.MORE NEWS: Stimulus Check Latest: Will Your Next Relief Payment Be $1,400?
