CENTER POINT GAS STATION ARMED ROBBERY:

Crime Stoppers needs your help identifying a suspect and person of interest in an armed robbery at a BP gas station on 2252 Center Point Parkway. It happened May 22 around 10 pm.

Pictures of the suspect and person of interest are posted to the right of this story.

That night, the suspect walked into the store with two guns demanding cash.

"If somebody is that brave to come in with two handguns drawn, fingers on the trigger, then there's no telling who his next victim is going to be the next time he needs a couple of hundred dollars," said Jefferson County Sheriff Office Sgt. Brian Allison.

Detectives also need your help identifying a person of interest in the case.

"There's a person of interest that comes into the store approximately a minute or two minutes before the robbery takes place," said Sgt. Allison. "Detectives need to figure out what he saw and what he may have been able to gather, if he saw anything at all."

If you know anything about either individual, contact Crime Stoppers immediately.

BIRMINGHAM ARMED ROBBERY AT KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUTS:
