Crime Stoppers’ Crime of the Week

Crime Stoppers needs your help to identify the two men captured on surveillance footage robbing a Richmond Convenience Store.

Last Sunday around 7:45 p.m., two armed masked men entered the Town Market at 250 E. Ladies Mile Road and robbed the clerk of money and cigarettes.

The first suspect is described as a black male, about 24 years old, approximately 5’6” to 5’8” feet tall and weighing between 150 pounds to 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black jacket with a red or orange stripe across the back with a gray hoodie underneath as well as blue jeans and black shoes.

The second suspect is described as a black male, about 20 to 21 years of age, 6’0” to 6’3” feet tall and weighing between 180 pounds and 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, a black shirt and black jeans with a design on the rear pockets that possibly says “COOGI.”
