On Monday, Jan. 11 at approximately 8 p.m., Deputy Sheriffs from the Logan County Sheriff’s Department (LCSD) responded to a call dispatched by Logan 911 of an armed robbery at the Omar One Stop located on Rt. 44.
Upon arrival, deputies report they learned from the clerk that two male individuals wearing masks entered the store.
The clerk reportedly described one of the men as white, approximately 5’-9”, 160-170 pounds, wearing a camouflage hoodie, with a black Kansas State sweatshirt, blue jeans and a white mask. The second male was reported to be white, approximately 5’-9” and 170 pounds.
The second individual was wearing a yellow sweatshirt/hoodie with camouflage bib overalls and a black mask with a hood. Both males seem to be of average build. Both were wearing boots.
The male in the yellow sweatshirt carried a weapon which looked to be a rifle with a wood stock.
Once inside, one of the males reportedly pointed the gun at the cashier demanding money and cigarettes.
Both individuals left the store and reportedly travel south on Rt. 44 towards Horsepen Mountain. The vehicle driven by the suspects is reporteded to be a newer model Ford Edge or Chev Equinox that is dark in color.
The LCSD has obtained video of the suspect’s vehicle passing a white Chevrolet Tahoe around the Omar Post Office at approximately 8:15-8:30 pm. The LCSD is hopeful the driver of the white Tahoe will recall that vehicle and is urged to contact the Logan County Sheriff’s Office.
Anyone with information as to the identity of these individuals are urged to contact the Logan County Sheriff’s Office at 304-792-8590, dispatch at 304-752-7662 or their tip line at 304-792-8593.
