DUNKLIN COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

The Dunklin County Sheriff's Office is looking for three suspects who allegedly robbed a convenience store and got away with cash and cigarettes.

Sheriff Bob Holder reported the incident happened around 9 p.m. at the Lucky Mart convenience store on Highway F in the south end of Dunklin County.

The store clerk told investigators a black man entered the store and pointed a gun at her face.  She said the man told her to put her hands up and give him the money.

The clerk said she opened the cash register and two white men came inside. One of the men took $479 in cash out of the register.

One of the men also ran behind the counter and grabbed $58 worth of cigarettes.

The clerk said she was held at gunpoint the entire time. 

She told investigators that the gun had a light on it.

According to the sheriff's office, the men left with the money and cigarettes in a silver or gold van with Arkansas plates.

The clerk told investigators the black man was wearing all black clothing including a hat, bandana, t-shirt, and jacket.

The man who grabbed the money was wearing a red sleeveless shirt, black shorts and was wearing a hockey mask.

The third suspect who ran behind the counter was wearing a white shirt, green shorts, high top sneakers and a white hockey mask.

Holder said the investigation is ongoing.
