BASIN CITY, Wash. - Franklin County Sheriff's Deputies responded to an armed robbery in Basin City. It happened Wednesday night at Sandovals Market in Basin City.

Sheriff's Deputies say it happened around 5:50 pm. They say two males walked into the store asking for cigars. Once they got to the front of the line they held the clerk at gunpoint and demanded money. They even took money from another customer.

The clerk says the incident only lasted a few minutes but luckily they were able to get some good video of the suspects.

"The one that put the gun on me, he just said open the cash register and give me the money, and the other one comes and opens the bag and says stuff it in here," says Ezequiel Sandoval, Manager of Sandoval's Market.

The Sheriff's Office says the men were described as Hispanic males in their early twenties. They drove off in a green car with rims and left with an undisclosed amount of money.
