One of the suspects was described as a white man in his early 20's, standing about 6' tall and weighing around 180 pounds. He had brown hair and a trimmed beard. He was wearing a dark jacket, red shirt, gray stocking cap, blue jeans, and black shoes. The other suspect was also a white man, standing about 5'6" tall and weighing around 130 pounds. He was wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt, a white cloth rag with eye holes cut out, blue jeans and brown tennis shoes. The robbery occurred just after 4 a.m. on Friday, December 18 at the Plaid Pantry located at 2429 Southeast 26th Avenue in Portland. Crime Stoppers officers were hoping that the surveillance video, combined with a cash reward of up to $1,000 will draw out some sort of tip that leads to an arrest in the case. Anyone who wants to leave a tip can call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357), leave a tip online I wonder how they could tell the firearms were autos?
