A grocery store clerk in Plumas County foiled an armed robbery attempt by disarming a shotgun-wielding man Thursday morning.

Sheriff's officials say Laird Brown walked into the Feather River Food Co-op in Portola Thursday morning and ordered customers and employees to the back of the store.

A clerk fought back, disarmed Brown and held him until the sheriff's office arrived.

Brown has been booked into the Plumas County Jail on four counts of false imprisonment. No injuries were reported.
