2 arrested in armed robbery at Macon County convenience store


Two suspects are in custody in connection with an armed robbery Tuesday night at a Lafayette convenience store.

Surveillance video from JR Food on Scottsville Road showed a man armed with a gun at the register with a bandana covering his face.

At one point, the man could be seen reaching into the cash register as he pointed the gun in the direction of a store employee.

Police said Wednesday morning that two suspects were in custody and the alleged getaway vehicle, a Ford Truck, had been recovered.

No other details were immediately released.
