Town of Lancaster police have enlisted the help of Crime Stoppers in their search for the two men who held up a convenience store Jan. 14.

The robbery at Red Apple Kwik-Fill, 5835 Broadway near Bowen Road, occurred at about 12:15 that Sunday morning. Two men wearing ski masks ran into the store, and the first pointed a silver-colored handgun at the clerk, ordering her to open the register or he would shoot. The second man ran behind the counter, and, when the clerk opened the cash register, he grabbed the cash drawer.

The clerk was ordered down to the floor before the men fled.

Both robbers were white men, approximately 6 feet tall and 180 pounds, with slim builds.

Anyone with information on this case or any unsolved felony is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 856-5600. Callers remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.

A re-enactment of this crime will be broadcast at 6 and 11 p.m. today and noon Wednesday on WKBW-TV, Channel 7.
