SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

Smith County officials are searching for two armed robbers.

On Jan. 25, around 10:30 p.m. deputies from the Smith County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to the 300 block of South Main Street in Winona after an aggravated robbery was reported.

Deputies arrived at the location and found that the Aces High Liquor Store had been robbed at gunpoint by two white males.

The clerks, who were not injured stated that the two suspects entered the store and pointed guns at them. The suspects then demanded money from the cash register and took several bottles of liquor before fleeing the location.

Detectives were able to secure the video surveillance footage from the robbery and continue to actively work the case. Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects.

Detectives are asking anyone with information about this offense to contact Detective Aaron Hinton at (903) 590-2698.
