Crime Stoppers: Police think same robbers hit in two counties

Two men robbed the Speedway at Man o'War and Liberty Roads at 1:40AM on April 28th. Police say both had handguns, both were wearing all black and one spoke with a Spanish accent.

Officers say the suspects made the clerk empty the register and a safe. They also stole cigarettes on their way out. But police say their crime spree didn't end there.

"A short time later, Paris Police Department Dispatch had a call with a commercial robbery to a Thortons station with their same description," said Detective Reid Bowles

Officers need your help identifying these two men before they strike again.

"We believe they're in Lexington or in the surrounding counties," Bowles said.

Police say the suspects were spotted taking off from one crime scene in a newer-model white two door pickup, with a white bed cover.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in this case. Call Crime Stoppers today at 859-253-2020. It's a free call and its anonymous.
