TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police are searching for two armed robbery suspects who may be illegally selling as many as 350 packs of stolen cigarettes.

Surveillance footage from June 22 shows the masked men at a S. Houghton Road Chevron Gas Station around 12:40 a.m.

One suspect had a handgun, and they fled the scene with the large amount of cigarettes.

The armed man is described as having a "heavy Hispanic accent." He was wearing an olive-colored t-shirt, royal blue pants, an Oakland Raider's baseball hat and a black bandana on his face, according to a TPD news release.

The second suspect was seen wearing a black "Tapout" sweatshirt and black pants.

Robbery Unit detectives believe they may be involved in illegal cigarette trafficking.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-Crime.
