OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City police are searching for a pair of suspects you could call the “rock and roll” robbers.

The two men who held up a local Subway shop.

The suspects came into the store posing as regular customers.

One of the thieves could be heard singing “The Heart of Rock and Roll” by Huey Lewis and the News.

The thief and his alleged partner in crime ordered up a couple footlongs.

“They pose as regular customers and order a couple of sandwiches,” said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.

The suspects stand around for several more minutes before making their move.

“It looks as if they are working up the nerve to rob this store,” said Wardlow.

With his courage built up, one crook goes behind the counter, flashes a handgun and demands cash from the register.

After getting his money, the crook and his partner run away.

No one inside this store got hurt in the holdup, but police still want to make sure these crooks sing their next song in jail.

“There were 2 or 3 employees in the store, fortunately none of them are injured,” said Wardlow. “We want to get these men captured.”

Anyone with information on the suspects seen in the video is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (405)235-7300.
