Autauga County Deputies Need Help Finding Armed Robbers
CBS 8 is taking action against crime -- Autauga County deputies are looking for two armed robbers who stole money and merchandise at a gas station convenience store. But the good news is -- local businesses may have some needed clues.
The armed robbery happened here at the Chevron gas station off exit 186 on interstate 65. Deputies tell us it's been about a decade since there was any major crime around this area. And they're hoping you can help find the suspects in this surveillance video.
Take a look at this surveillance video. Autauga County Sheriff's Deputies say they're searching for these two armed robbers. Deputies say two customers and a clerk were inside the Chevron convenience store off Highway 31 around 1 a.m.
That's when they say in minutes, the robbers came in through the front door and stole an unknown amount of money and several boxes of cigarettes. But while the robbery was taking place, a sheriff's deputy drove up to the store.
Julie Milton works inside the Exxon gas station. She says her surveillance video shows the robbers running out behind her business dumpster.
Deputies say there was a third person waiting in a getaway car. They believe he or she was driving a gold-colored Mercury Marquis or Crown Victoria, which was last seen traveling south on i-65 towards Montgomery.
