The two suspects are believed to be Hispanic males or light complected African Americans, small to medium build. These suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.

The suspects allegedly were in the store for a short time, casing the store, before approaching a cashier and holding her at gun point, Smith stated in a CPD press release Tuesday morning.
They allegedly escorted the cashier to the office where another employee noticed the suspects were holding a gun to her head. At that time the office staff opened the door and allowed the suspects inside the office.
The press release further states that the suspects allegedly ordered the two employees to the floor at gunpoint, threatening to kill them. After gathering the money into a bag, the suspects allegedly then walked out of the store and headed toward Third Street.
The exact amount of cash is believed to be substantial.
