LANCASTER – Lancaster detectives are searching for two men who robbed a Metro PCS store at gunpoint Thursday night.
The incident happened around 8:07 p.m. at 1019 West Avenue I, said Lancaster Station Watch Commander Lt. Carter.
“Two male blacks walked in the store yielding a handgun and essentially took money from the cash register and left the location,” Carter said.
The men escaped on foot by running westbound towards 15th Street West behind the store alley and out of sight, according to a station broadcast.
Carter said only one clerk and no customers were in the Metro PCS store during the robbery. The crime was caught on the store’s surveillance camera, he said.
“We have video footage of it, so hopefully we will identify the suspects,” Carter added.
