The Pima County Sheriff's Department is looking for two men who are suspected of armed robbery at the Circle K at 5818 South Palo Verde Road.

PCSD said the incident happened on Thursday July 13 just after 1:30 p.m.

Investigators said one suspect jumped over the counter and took cigarettes from the shelves while the other suspect stood watch.

  • Hispanic, between 18 and 20-years-old

  • Approximately 5’6” tall, 140-150 pounds, with short dark hair
