An attempted armed robbery has turned into a search for suspects in Clay County.
The Clay County Sheriff’s Department reports, early Friday morning a man entered the Speedway Fuel Center on State Road 59, near I-70. The man had a handgun, and followed an employee behind the counter to the cash drawer.
The employee hit the panic button and the man left the store, running away on foot. After a check of surveillance video, investigators believe three men in their late teens or early 20’s were involved.
All the men were tall, with slender builds, and wearing black hoodie sweatshirts.
Officials say although the suspects took no money, they should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information should call law enforcement.
