Fresno police Thursday sought help tracking down two armed robbers involved in a brazen daylight crime near First Street and Herndon Avenue by releasing video surveillance of the incident.
The robbery took place Feb. 8 shortly after noon when a merchant pulled in to Village Liquor with an estimated $6,000 worth of cigarettes in his truck. As he unloaded the cargo, the bandits began putting boxes in a silver Chevrolet Impala. When confronted by the merchant, one of the bandits pulled a handgun as the two made their escape.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP, where a reward for information leading to an arrest is offered.
