NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Newport News police are seeking the identity of two suspects of a convenient store robbery last week and two additional individuals who have cashed lottery tickets stolen during the robbery.
Harold Eley with the Newport News Police Department said officers responded to the Tinee Giant at 12596 Warwick Blvd.Thursday around 11:50 p.m. for a report of a robbery. The store's clerk told police two masked men forced him behind the counter at gunpoint while one took cash from the register and the other stole lottery tickets, condoms and boxes of cigars.
When the suspects left, they ran toward the back of the store, according to the clerk.
