Sheriff Mike Waguespack reports that on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, at approximately 8:26 pm, three masked men, brandishing handguns, entered a place of business called Spur 70 One Stop LLC on Highway Spur 70 in Plattenville and robbed two female employees of an undetermined amount of money.
During the incident one of the suspects struck an employee with his handgun, causing a laceration to her head. The injury was minor and she did not have to be transported to the emergency room for further treatment.
When the employees failed to open the cash register fast enough, one of the suspects picked it up and fled with his accomplices out the front door.
Deputies later recovered the register and items belonging to the suspects in a ditch of a nearby residence and in a nearby pasture behind Lucky Hit Subdivision. Anyone with information concerning this matter can contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 985-526-1627 or the Communications Division at 985-369-2912. A Reward may be offered for information provided which leads to the arrest of theses suspects.
