Forest Acres police are investigating an armed robbery Wednesday night at the Rite Aid on Forest Drive.
Two armed men, wearing bandanas to hide their faces, came to the store at 4730 Forest Drive five minutes before it closed at 10 p.m. Two employees were ordered to give up an undisclosed amount of money, according to an incident report.
Police called in tracking dogs from Richland County Sheriff’s Department, and the trail ended at a parking area behind the gas station next door, at Trenholm Road and Forest Drive.
"There’s a good chance they got into a car there," Chief Gene Sealy said Friday. "Could have been a third party, we don’t know that."
Anyone with information may call police at (803) 782-9444 or Crime Stoppers at (888) CRIME-SC.
