    The cashier was not injured in the robbery.

    Investigators said one of the suspects dropped a carton of cigarettes that was collected as evidence and will be tested for fingerprints.

    The men were described as men with a medium build, between 5’10” and six feet tall and wearing dark-colored hooded shirts. One was described as having acne. Police said they aren’t aware of a vehicle was used in the commission of the robbery.
