Crime Stoppers of Northeast Mississippi needs help in solving a robbery that occurred in Tupelo.

On May 31, a clerk of the 601 N. Gloster St. Amoco Station was securing the door when she was approached by two black males. One suspect indicated he had a weapon and demanded that the clerk put all her money in a paper bag. The clerk complied and the suspects fled on foot, running behind the building.

One suspect is described as a 5 foot 8 inch black male in his early 20s, with a medium to dark complexion and medium-length hair. He was last seen wearing a dark short-sleeve shirt and a dark hat.

The second suspect is described as a black male, about 6 feet and in his late 20s or early 30s. He is said to have an average build and short hair. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a dingy white T-shirt.

Crime Stoppers will pay the first caller with information leading to an arrest $1,000.

Anyone with information on this crime or any other crime, the location of stolen property, illegal drugs or a fugitive from justice, is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-773-TIPS.
