Kennett police are asking for the public’s help in solving an armed robbery.
Just before 2 a.m. Wednesday two men robbed the Taco Bell located on Independence Avenue, according to an email from Lt. Tim Trowbridge of the Kennett Police Department.
Employees told police two white men, wearing dark clothing with bandannas covering their faces, approached them during closing time.
The victims said at least one of the suspects had a black handgun.
After taking an undisclosed amount of cash and other items the suspects, who were described as being in their late teens or early 20s, then ran east behind the Days Inn hotel.
While searching for the robbers, Trowbridge said officers found a weapon believed to have been used in the robbery along with other items dropped by the suspects during their escape.
