The Madison County Sheriff’s Department is investigating an armed robbery Thursday night at the Casey’s General Store on Godfrey Road in Godfrey.  Two masked suspects entered the store just after 10:30pm, showed a handgun, and made off with an undetermined amount of cash.

Madison County Sheriff’s Department Captain Mike Dixon tells The Big Z the suspects threatened the two clerks at gunpoint, directed one to the floor, and the other to the cash register.

The suspects are described as younger black males, possibly in their late teens or early twenties, short, with thin builds.  It is now believed they fled south towards Alton.  If you have any information on this crime, Dixon asks you call 692-4433, or the Anonymous Tip Line at 296-3000.
