PHILADLPHIA, Miss. (WTOK) - Two armed robbery suspects are still in the run in Philadelphia. Police were called to the Dollar Tree on Lewis Avenue around 5:30 Tuesday night. A handgun was used in the robbery. No one was injured, but the suspects got away with an unknown amount of cash. With the busiest shopping season just beginning, the robbery has other local retailers speaking out.
“It’s disconcerting, especially at this time of the year for something like that to happen, but I do want to encourage our customers that we want you to have a safe experience and we want your retail shopping experience with Kademi to be a safe one,” says Kademi owner Dawn Lea Chalmers.
The suspects are described as two black males- late teens to early 20’s. If you have any information about this crime, contact the Philadelphia Police Department or your local crime stoppers.
