When deputies arrived on scene, the suspects had already fled with an undetermined amount of money. According to a press release for the sheriff’s office, the store clerk was visibly upset. She reported that three skinny males wearing dark-colored clothing and ski masks had entered the store and approached the check-out counter where she stood. Then one pointed a handgun at her, demanding that she give him the money. The press release said that one of the suspects jumped over the counter and grabbed several bags of money. When the clerk attempted to leave through a back door, she struggled with one suspect until he turned to flee with the other suspects through the front door. The store clerk was not injured.Surveillance videos were recovered from neighboring businesses, and an investigation is underway. Deputies haven’t determined yet how much money was taken. The men left on foot, but it’s still unknown whether they got in a vehicle.
