Surveillance video in Pawn America armed robbery released


Roseville police released surveillance video showing two suspects in an armed robbery that left a pawn shop employee with a gunshot wound.

The footage is only 13 seconds long, and was uploaded to YouTube by Lillie News, and other news organizations. Police are asking for the public's help identifying the suspects.

The incident happened around 5:45 p.m. Monday, at a Pawn America store on the 1700 block of North Rice Street in Roseville.

Roseville police said in a press release two suspects entered the store. One began firing a pistol immediately, shooting a 27-year-old employee in the leg with one of the rounds. The second suspect smashed a glass display and took an undisclosed amount of jewelry and watches.

The suspects then fled the scene in a vehicle and were last reported traveling westbound on Larpenteur Avenue towards Dale Street.

The Roseville Police Department previously released an image of the suspects' car, a dark colored Chevy Cobalt (seen at right).

The employee suffered non-life threatening injuries and was treated at the hospital. Nobody else was injured.

According to WCCO, Pawn America is offering a cash reward of $2,500 for any information that helps police find the suspects.

FOX 9 has photos of the robbery in progress, and a clearer image of the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Minnesota Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
