Surveillance Video Released In Family Dollar Hold-Up

Police have released surveillance video from this week's robbery of a Family Dollar store in Greenville.

Just before 10:00 p.m. Wednesday, two robbers came into the business on South Memorial Drive, near Arlington Boulevard. One was wearing a hockey mask.

One of the robbers jumped over the counter and took money from two money drawers. Police say the two threatened employees and also demanded money from the store's safe.

Both robbers are described as black males, 18 to 20 years old and both wearing dark clothes. The robber with the hockey mask appeared to be about 6’0" tall with a slender build. The second had a red bandana concealing his face. He appeared to be about 5’10” tall with an average build.

A police dog followed their track to Meridian Park Apartments before it lost the scent.
