St. Pauls Area Crimestoppers is offering a large, no-questions-asked reward for information concerning the armed robbery of a local convenience store.
On Monday, November 10, at about 10 pm, four black males armed with guns, and wearing bandanas over their faces and toboggans, entered the Happy Mart store at the intersection of Highway 20 East and Barker Ten Mile Road and robbed it.
One of the robbers ordered one of the two clerks to the floor after robbing him, while the others pointed their weapons at the other clerk and robbed him and the cash register.
The four men then fled the store on foot and ran behind the store before disappearing down Barker Ten Mile Road.
The armed robbers made off with a total of $2,600 from the clerks and the store. They also stole a Taurus .38 caliber snub-nosed handgun.
