ELKHART — The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a Friday afternoon robbery at Elkhart Cigarette Outlet.

Two white males entered the store at 51505 S.R. 19 around 2:15 p.m. Friday and demanded money from the cashier, said the sheriff’s department in a news release.

The men placed an undisclosed amount of cash, several cartons of cigarettes and other items from the store into a black trash bag, ordered the cashier to the floor and left the scene.

Witnesses could not describe the vehicle or in which direction the suspects fled.

They may have had a stun gun but it was not seen during the incident, police said.

The suspects are both about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weigh between 160 and 170 pounds. They were wearing black hoodies, light colored pants and had blue or black bandanas covering their faces.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Department at 533-4151.
