Authorities are searching for two possible teenagers who they say held up the Dollar General in Chalkville over the weekend.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jack Self said that the teens had been hanging around the store in the 2200 block of Brewster Road for some time Saturday night. They asked employees about items on the shelf, and even helped the store manager bring in carts from the parking lot, Self said.
Self said that after helping one of the teens pointed a handgun at the cashier at 8:40 p.m. and demanded money. The cashier ran to the back of the store screaming, and the manager and customers in the store also fled, Self said
No one was injured and no money was taken, Self said.
One teen was described as 15 to 17 years old and the other 11 to 13 years old. A description of the pair was broadcast to deputies in the area. The suspects were not found.
The older suspect was described to be about 5-foot-7, 160 pounds, wearing a black hoodie, gray sweatpants, and carrying a black and blue backpack. The younger one was described to be about 5-feet tall, 90 pounds and wearing a blue hoodie. Both were black males.
Self said deputies searched the area but were not able to locate the teens. Anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 205-325-1450.
