Police say three men entered a Circle K store in the 4100 block of N. First Avenue just after 3 a.m. Tuesday. They went behind the counter with bags and took large amounts of cigarettes and alcohol from the shelves before leaving the scene, according to a news release.

The third suspect was described as a 16 to 19-year-old African-American male, around 5'9" tall and weighing about 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a red, long sleeve t-shirt.

No injuries were reported and no weapon was seen.
