Deputies in one county are investigating their first store robbery since Christmas.
Lenoir County Sheriff Chris Hill says the BP Hasty Mart on U.S. 70 outside of La Grange was held up at gunpoint Saturday night.
Hill says while one gunman ordered the clerk to place all the money into a paper bag, another robber held his gun on a customer. The two ran from the store toward the Jim Sutton Road area.
Deputies searched the area, along with a K9 from Kinston, and believe the robbers got into a vehicle that was parked near Jim Sutton Road.
Hill says the gunmen were both black men in the 30s, wearing blue and white bandannas, along with hooded sweatshirts.
Anyone with information on the robbery should call the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office at 252-559-6140.
