FOR THE WEEK DECEMBER 6TH, 2009
Two robbers knew exactly where to look for hidden money during a recent robbery. Around 4 o’clock in the morning on Monday, November 30th, two men entered the Johnson’s General Store at 5400 North Meridian. When one of the suspects pointed a handgun at the clerk, he grabbed the gun and struggled with the gunman. The other suspect then joined in and subdued the clerk. One of the suspects held him at gunpoint while the other robber went straight for a cabinet where a bank bag with a large amount of cash was being stored. The robbers ran out of the store with the loot towards the north side of the building.
Both suspects are described as black males in their 20’s having a medium height and build. They were wearing black masks and black hooded sweatshirts. One had black gloves while the other wore white socks on his hands.
