Clayton Police have released new surveillance photos in hopes of catching two suspects who robbed a convenience store on US 70.
Around 10:30 on last Friday night, June 14, two people walked into the Handi-Mart at 10419 US Hwy 70 West, both armed with handguns and demanding money.
Two employees inside at the time were unharmed. The store clerk pulled the money from the register and gave up his own wallet, and then the men ran out of the store.
The suspects both wore hooded sweatshirts that helped to conceal their faces and wore latex gloves, but detectives hope the shoes, clothing or body build in the surveillance footage may look familiar to someone in the public.
The first suspect was a tall black male, just over 6 ft. tall, wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, light-colored pants, white sneakers, latex gloves and carrying a semi-automatic handgun.
The second suspect was a black male or female about 5’7”-5’8”, wearing dark shoes, a white or light-colored hooded sweatshirt with the image of a baby that is a known logo from Primitive Skateboarding and rapper Notorious B.I.G., latex gloves and carrying a revolver.
If you recognize these men or have any information that may lead to their arrest, please call Clayton Police Detective J.P. Linder at 919-553-0153 or call 911 and ask to speak to an officer. You may remain anonymous.
