The LaGrange Police Department is searching for two suspects who participated in an armed robbery at Circle K on Roanoke Road Monday around 2:25 a.m. According to a LPD press release, two men approached the store’s clerk and demanded money while one held a firearm.

“Basically, the clerk was outside and they approached her brandishing a gun and told her to go in — the usual thing — go in and get [them] some money from the register,” LPD Sgt. Robert Kirby said. “She complied, and then they left walking toward Burger King, and we don’t know where they went from there.”

The suspects left with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the press release.

“We’d like some help if anybody can help us out, take a look at the photos on our Facebook page, and if they have any information, please call us,” Kirby said.

The two suspects are seen on camera from the Circle K wearing hoodies and bandanas to cover their faces, and are described as African American. Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact the LPD at (706) 883-2603 or the Troup County Crime Stoppers at (706) 812-1000.
