A former Union resident took away less than $10 after he allegedly robbed three teens at gunpoint Sunday night

Shawn Aubuchon, 35, is charged with felony robbery after he allegedly used a handgun to rob the 16-year-old boys outside of MotoMart at Church Street and Highway 50.

He is being held at the Franklin County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

Police said Aubuchon’s address is listed as Washington, but he is originally from Union.

According to Union police, the robbery occurred at 8:20 p.m. when Aubuchon demanded cash and cellphones from the teens.

The victims gave him less than $10, and a cellphone before he got into a black four-door car as a passenger and left the scene.

One of the teens told a clerk at the store about the robbery, and called police. Union officers were at the scene within one minute, according to police.

The driver of the car Aubuchon was in did not know he pulled a gun on the teens, police said.

The suspect was dropped off a few blocks from the gas station because the driver suspected Aubuchon committed some type of crime.

Union police showed still images from a surveillance camera at MotoMart to clerks at other convenience stores and were able to use additional cameras to determine the license plate of the vehicle Aubuchon left the robbery scene in.

Authorities went to the home of the owner of the car located on Highway UU, however, Aubuchon was not at the residence.

In the meantime, the suspect got a ride from Union to the home on Highway UU.

“He was not there when we got there and showed up after we left,” said Assistant Police Chief Lt. Kyle Kitcher.

Aubuchon was arrested at 4 a.m. by Franklin County deputies at a home off Highway UU.

Police said the person who gave Aubuchon a ride to the Highway UU home also was not aware that Aubuchon robbed the teens.

No weapon has been located, police said.
