Robbers Hit Merced Store

Authorities in Merced are looking for two men who robbed a store late Tuesday night.

Merced Police say two men wearing black hooded jackets and dark masks walked into the Dollar General store in the 1700 block of W. Highway 140 at about 11:45 p.m.

According to investigators, one of the men put a gun up to the head of one of the workers inside the manager's office and demanded money. The employee told him that she didn't have access to the cash.

Investigators say the second man grabbed an unknown amount of money that was on a counter and then both went into the rest of the store.

All four employees who were inside ran out of the store and called for help.

The two men then ran away.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Merced Police Department at (209) 385-4725.
