High Country Crime Stoppers and Boone Police seek the public’s assistance in solving the following crime:
On March 16, 2020, at around 10:45 pm, Boone Police Officers responded to a 911 call reporting a Robbery with a weapon at the Circle K Gas Station, located at 1218 State Farm Road in Boone, North Carolina. The store clerk reported that two white males entered the store wearing masks. The suspects demanded money from the cash register, with one of them brandishing a knife at the clerk. The two suspects left the store with an undisclosed amount of money, beer, beef jerky and cigarettes. The males left the store on foot, headed in a northwest direction.
Upon viewing video footage, it was determined that the males spoke to the clerk with a distinct Hispanic accent. One suspect was wearing a gray sweatshirt with black sleeves and hood, blue jeans with white fade marks on the front and back and boots. The second suspect was wearing a black zip-up jacket with a hood, and dark blue jeans. The hood was partially or fully lined in red.
A canvas of the area revealed that a white, possibly four door vehicle was seen in the parking lot of a Kimberly Drive apartment complex, near the scene of the incident. A witness observed a white male changing his shirt at this vehicle.
