Police said the pair entered the Exxon Shop, located at 2801 Rowland Ave. in Lumberton, on Aug. 1 and made a small purchase. As the clerk was completing the purchase, the larger man pulled out a gun and proceeded to grab cash from the open register.

As the suspects left the shop, he also grabbed two $20 scratch-off lottery tickets.

The second suspect is described as a 6’1” black man with a thin, full beard weighing between 160 and 190 pounds. He was wearing black pants, black shoes, and a grey New York Yankees baseball cap.
