The department sent out the following news release Wednesday:

San Diego County Crime Stoppers, along with detectives from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department’s Poway Station, are asking for assistance from the public to help identify and locate two unknown persons in connection with an armed robbery in Poway.

On Nov. 1, 2012, at approximately 9:45 p.m., the Old Poway Market, located at 14047 Midland Rd. in Poway, was robbed by two unknown suspects. One of the suspects was armed with a shotgun. As he entered the store he racked a round in the shotgun and ordered two employees to lie on the floor.

The second suspect, who was not armed, went behind the counter and retrieved a blue deposit bag containing approximately $3,000 in cash and personal checks. The subjects then exited the market and fled in a dark vehicle northbound on Midland Road.
