— Johnston County authorities asked for help Tuesday in identifying the three suspects in an armed robbery at Warren's Gas and Grocery, 8513 U.S. Highway 701 in Newton Grove.

The sheriff's office released surveillance images and video showing the trio, who appear to be white men in their late teens or early 20s. One suspect is visible wearing a long, blue jacket, blue hooded sweatshirt and khaki pants. The second is wearing a dark blue jacket with white trim, a black hat, blue jeans and black shoes. The third man is wearing a blue bandanna covering his face, a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants.

The men robbed the store at gunpoint on Nov. 30 and fled in a dark green SUV, according to the sheriff's office.

Anyone with information about the crime or the suspects is asked to call the Johnston County Sheriff's Office at 919-989-5000.
