Suffolk Police are investigating an armed robbery that sparked a search in Lindenhurst in and around Sunrise Highway on Thursday night.
Police told Lindenhurst Patch in an e-mail on Friday two unknown men allegedly walked into Happy Times Tobacco - located at 130 Sunrise Highway on the border of the Village of Lindenhurst - at 8:07 p.m. with hand guns and demanded cash.
They purportedly fled with cash, and there was no arrest, police officials said, despite a search of the area by police involving a SCPD helicopter several residents on Facebook reported seeing over Lindenhurst last night.
Police are asking anyone with information about the January 17 robbery to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
