PERRY, Kan. (KSNT) – Authorities in Jefferson County are looking for two suspects involved in a robbery in Perry.
“I woke up the next morning and she goes there was a robbery around 4:15. I locked the door because the suspects weren’t caught yet…. so I was scared. It’s never happened before,” said Jordan Spreer, who lives just down the street from the robbery.
Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig said around 4:00 Monday morning the Casey’s General Store located at 702 Elm Street was robbed by two suspects who were wearing masks and camoflauge clothing and had an unknown weapon.
“They came flying in to the parking lot and rushed them with guns and they were actually outside taking a break,” said Herrig.
The suspects left the store with an unknown amount of money in a vehicle. The vehicle was located later in the morning without the suspects. Herrig said the investigation is ongoing, but because the suspects wore masks they have little to go on.
The Kansas Highway Patrol is helping the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office with the search.
