Thieves Armed With AK-47 Rob Miami Convenience Store

Police are looking for a pair of armed thieves, including one who was carrying an AK-47, after they were caught on camera robbing a convenience store in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood.

The robbery happened around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, police said. The robbers walked in, approached the clerks and demanded money from the cash register. The robber with the AK-47 held the employees at gunpoint while the other one, who was armed with a handgun, grabbed the money.

Both robbers fled in an unknown direction. None of the employees were hurt.

"The video is outrageous, someone running into a convenience store with an AK-47. I don't think it's really that necessary," Little Haiti resident Shawn Jones said.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
