By BBN Staff: Independence police have detained three men in connection with an armed robbery yesterday.
The cashier reported that last night at around 7:45 two Hispanic men entered her store in the village.
One of the men pulled out a firearm and pointed it at her.
He then jumped across the counter and took an undisclosed amount of cash. The men then made good their escape.
Fortunately, they were caught on camera which led to their immediate arrests.
However, police have not yet made any charges as the complainant is yet to determine if she wants to take legal action against the men.
