Three men stole cash registers from the Summit gas station on Victory Drive during an armed robbery Tuesday morning, according to the Columbus Police Department.
Lt. John McMichael said three men entered the store at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, all armed with knives. When the gas station clerk saw the men enter the store, he ran to the office in the back, locked the door and called police.
While the clerk was calling police, the men took the cash registers and fled. No other items appeared to be taken. The total amount held in the cash registers was not available.
All three men were wearing bits of cloth or shirts around their head to mask their faces. However, the clerk was able to provide sufficient details for two suspects.
One was described as a 6-foot black man with a heavy build, possibly weighing around 240 pounds. He was wearing blue basketball shorts.
The other was described as a 6-foot black man, thinner than the previous suspect and also wearing basketball shorts. The color of the shorts was not available.
