Police investigate armed robbery at an Auto Zone

WARR ACRES, Okla. - Police are looking for two men who robbed an Auto Zone and held an employee at gunpoint.

It was the last thing the employees at the Auto Zone in Warr Acres expected.

"Right about midnight at closing today, there were two employees here," said Lt. Matt Berger with the Warr Acres Police Department.

As the employees attempted to lock the front doors, they endured a terrifying encounter.

"Two suspects came in armed with semi-automatic pistols and wearing bandannas over their faces," Berger said.

Police said one of the employees was held at gunpoint while the other was forced to retrieve the cash register.

"After the robbery was already in progress, a customer came to the front door and the employees actually left the business with the customer and went to another location to call 911," Berger said.

When officers arrived on scene, the suspects were already gone.

Police are unsure how much cash they got away with.

Surveillance video captured the incident but, because the suspects kept their faces covered, it made it difficult for police and the employees to get a good description of them.

"They actually didn't see the suspects leave. They were still in the building when they fled the scene," Berger said.

Police are looking for two men.

One was wearing a black hoodie, and one was wearing a green hoodie at the time of the robbery.
