MANATEE Two thin male suspects holding handguns with clothing wrapped around their faces held up the Ruby Food Mart at 2001 Ninth St. W.
The armed robbery occurred at 9:55 p.m. Saturday, according to a Bradenton Police Department report.
An alarm sent officers rushing to the store but they arrived just after the crime was completed, the report stated.
The suspects took approximately $233 in cash before they ran from the store, according to the report.
Bradenton officers received help from a Manatee County Sheriffs Office K-9 team to track the suspects and a helicopter for surveillance. The K-9 tracked to City Walk Apartments where the trail was lost, according to the report.
