BURLINGTON, NC -- Burlington Police responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Fairway One Stop, on S. Church Street just after 11 pm.
When officers arrived, they say two suspects armed with handguns came in and both robbed the cashier at gunpoint. The suspects stole various items from the store and an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspects fled on foot toward Silverlake Drive. Thankfully, the employees in the store were not physically injured during the incident. With help from Elon PD, a K9 track led to where they believe a get-away vehicle was parked on Silverlake Drive.
Police released surveillance pictures from the incident. Anyone with information concerning this crime is encouraged to contact the Burlington Police Department at (336) 229-3500.
