Masked suspects rob Royal City store at gunpoint

Print Article

ROYAL CITY — Police in Royal City are searching for two males who reportedly robbed a store in the city last week at gunpoint.

The two masked assailants reportedly entered Estudillo’s Food Store on Camelia Street Northwest about 9 p.m. Thursday. Royal City Police Department Chief Darin Smith said the suspects were wearing black clothing and brandished handguns when they entered the business.

The suspects demanded the store clerks hand over money from the cash register. An undisclosed amount of money was handed over and the suspects fled the area on foot. Smith said the store clerks were frazzled during the robbery and were not able to tell police how tall the suspects were or how much they weighed.

There were no reported injuries during the robbery. If you have any information on the incident contact the Royal City Police Department at 509-346-2212 or MACC Dispatch at 509-762-1160.
