KERNERSVILLE, N.C. — Police say a convenience store was robbed by five men who were each armed with a handgun early Tuesday in Kernersville.

Police said each of the five suspects were individually armed with a handgun when they entered the Quality Mart convenience store at 1580 N.C. 66 South around 12:30 a.m.

The suspects demanded money from the clerks and ran away from the store after receiving an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police said a K-9 led them south to an adjoining apartment complex, where they believe the suspects had a waiting vehicle.

One suspect was described as speaking with a Spanish accent. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a yellow sweatshirt with a toboggan and ski mask.

The other suspects were described as wearing gloves, dark hooded sweatshirts, and white “homemade” hoods or face masks.

No other descriptions were available.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Kernersville Police.
