Clayton Police are searching for three men who robbed a convenience store early this morning (Monday).
Around 1:45 am officers responded to an armed robbery at the Han-Dee Hugo on US 70 near Shotwell Road. Three men walked in, one with a handgun, and demanded money from the night shift employee. No customers were in the store and the clerk was not hurt.
All three men walked behind the counter and took money, cigarettes and cigars. They ran out toward the dirt parking lot behind the gas station and the Bojangle’s next door.
They jumped into a white older model Ford Explorer and fled on Shotwell Road.
Police ask anyone who recognizes the suspects or the distinctive clothing they were wearing to call Clayton Police at 919-553-4611 or Clayton CrimeStoppers at 919-359-TIPZ (8479). Callers can remain anonymous.
