Two armed robbers who held up a pizza store last week are being sought by Richland County sheriff's department.
The two men didn't come to the Papa John's at 817 St. Andrews Road last Tuesday at 1:50 p.m. because they wanted hot pizza -- they wanted cold cash.
One suspect gave a note to an employee saying he had a gun and demanded money.
The employee opened the cash register and gave money to the robbers, who then fled.Sheriff Leon Lott said the suspects drove off in a white pickup truck.
