Police Search for Armed Robbers Using Shotguns
WOODLAWN, Ohio (Paula Toti) -- It was close to this time Tuesday night when two masked men entered the Little Caesars on Springfield Pike.
One had a shotgun. The security video is similar to video from Sunday at a gas station nearby in Springfield Township.
A shotgun may have been used there, and one was used two weeks ago at another nearby pizza shop robbery.
You can see in the video the suspects are wearing masks as they rob a man and woman working at the Little Caesars.
One of the subjects made employees empty all the money from the register and then a second with a shotgun made female manager open the safe and empty contents and fled in an unknown direction.
On Sunday two suspects asked the clerk at this BP at Vine and Compton in Springfield Township to empty a register. But when the clerk was asked to empty the safe he said he didn't have the code. That clerk was the owner's cousin.
Andu said his cousin was getting ready to close. Before he closed he wanted to go to the restroom and put a note that said back in two minutes and came back and opened the lock as two men forced their way inside saying they had a gun. After taking money they ran out of the store and jumped a fence to cross the street.
Two weeks ago in Springfield Township there was an armed robbery with a shotgun at the pizza hut on West Galbraith.
Detective Donald Fourth talked to the victims working last night.
The one female is to the point of quitting and the male is shaken but planning to return to work.
Andu wonders if he'll be needing a new employee.
I don't know if he's going to come this weekend or not, he's so scared.
As Detective Fourth puts it he gets paid to possibly deal with suspects and guns, it's not part of the job description for clerks.
In both cases with the security video there's either no outside video or nothing of consequence to show if a car is involved.
Despite what happened Tuesday night Paula is told the two employees involved did show up for work Wednesday.
