A robbery suspect was busted for trying to steal hair color with a fake gun.

The incident happened at the CVS Pharmacy on Highway 70.

The suspect allegedly walked in, grabbed a box of Just for Men hair color, and then pulled a gun, telling the clerk it was a robbery.

However, the clerk noticed the gun was a green, plastic fake and told the man he was calling police, so the suspect ran from the scene.

The suspect left the box of Just for Men behind, and officials recovered a fingerprint which matched with a name on record.

The suspect was taken into custody for aggravated robbery.
