Two sought in convenience store robbery

Investigators are looking for two men suspected of stealing beer from a convenience store.

The men entered the Circle K at 4300 Hard Scrabble Road on Dec. 20 around 2:45 a.m. and walked out with several cases of beer. They fled in a vehicle without paying, the Richland County Sheriff's Department said.

A clerk tried to stop the suspects but was threatened by one suspect who revealed a handgun in his waistband.

Video surveillance captured the theft.

The men were last seen driving a yellowish, older four-door compact car.
