CENTER POINT SPORTING GOODS ROBBERY:

Crime Stoppers needs your help identifying three suspects wanted for robbery October 11th. The three men, whose pictures are posted to the right of this story, rushed into the Center Point Hibbett Sports around 8:15 pm.

"The employees looked at the video monitor and could see what was happening, so they locked the office door and went ahead and hit the alarm," said Sgt. Brian Allison. "There's no doubt in my mind had somebody been there, they would have become a victim, whether it was a customer or an employee."

The suspects ran toward 23rd Avenue, leading police to believe they could be from the area.

Sgt. Allison added: "We don't know where they are in their crime career. They could be just starting out and they are nervous, and they're going to take precautions. Or they could be somewhere in the middle, and they're fixing to escalate to other, bigger things. We just need to stop them before they get to that point."
