EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — Crime Stoppers of El Paso are searching for two masked men robbed an East-Central convenience store at gunpoint in late February, stealing cigarettes and candy along with an undisclosed amount of cash.
It happened in the early morning hours of Tuesday, February 25, when police say the men walked into the 7-Eleven store located at 6360 Airport Road and approached the store cashier. One of the two men pulled out a gun ad demanded money from the cash register.
The pair fled the scene with a small amount of money, several boxes of Marlboro Cigarettes, Swisher Sweets Cigars, a flashlight, and several Reece’s candy bars. They were last seen running toward the back of the store through the attached car wash.
