SANFORD, Maine (AP) - An 18-year-old man has been accused of robbing a convenience store with a 2 ½-foot sword in Sanford, Maine, that was found in a snowbank.

Police arrested Shamus Malone on Monday. He was found in an apartment complex.

They say he’s accused of taking alcohol and cigarettes from the Airport Variety store and brandishing what looked like a knife.

Police say they recovered what they believed to be the weapon - a sword - in a snowbank next to the apartment complex.

Malone, who had been charged with taking merchandise from another store early Monday, was being held at the York County Jail on $5,000 bail. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer and a phone number couldn’t be found for him.
