Officers said they checked the area around here looking for the robbers but couldn't find them last night.

A man who lives near the store said this kind of activity, unfortunately, is not uncommon.

"This place has been robbed in the past, just days ago it seems like," said Darell Hufstetler. " And it's dangerous in the area.  I just think they need more security in this area. And I just think they need more security around here at least patrol more often and its been that way for a while."
