Gas station robbed at gunpoint

VALLEY — The Valley Police Department is currently investigating an armed robbery at the Circle K convenience store.

At about 2:30 a.m., Valley officers responded to the Circle K located on the 2000 block of 20th Ave., where the clerk told officers that two suspects entered the store and demanded cash and merchandise.

Authorities say the clerk reported that one was armed with a handgun and fled the scene shortly after receiving what they demanded.

The suspects were last seen running into the Shawmut Mill Village.

Officers from Valley, Lanett and the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office searched the mill village area but were unable to locate them.

The suspects were described as being young (mid to late teens) black males.

Both about 5’08” to 5’10” in height and skinny. The first suspect was wearing a black or gray hoodie, black pants and white tennis shoes.

The second suspect was wearing a blue and yellow long sleeve shirt. Both suspects kept their faces covered during the robbery.

If anybody has any information concerning the identity of these suspects, they are asked to call the Valley Police Department at (334) 756-5200 or the Valley Area Crime Stoppers at (334) 756-8200.
