SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police are looking for two suspects wanted for holding up the Shore Stop at 1020 Eastern Shore Drive early Thursday morning.

Salisbury police said the incident happened at around 2:40 a.m., when two armed, masked men armed with handguns walked into the store and forced the sole female employee behind the sales counter as they demanded money.

Investigators said the employee gave one of the suspects an undisclosed amount of cash, while the other suspect began filling a bag with packs of cigarettes. The suspects then ran out of the store and headed in an unknown direction.

There were no injuries reported during the incident.

The Salisbury Police Department K-9 “Meso” assisted in the investigation, and conducted a K-9 track which police said revealed additional evidence along the flight path of the suspects.

The first suspect was described as black, 25-30 years of age, approximately 6-foot-tall, 160 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt pulled up over his head, a dark mask, white gloves, blue jeans and was armed with a black automatic-style handgun.

The second suspect was described as black or Hispanic, 25-30 years of age, approximately 6-foot-tall, 160 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt pulled up over his head, a dark mask, white gloves, blue jeans and armed with a black automatic-style handgun.

The investigation is ongoing and detectives are requesting anyone with information to contact the Salisbury Police Department at (410) 548-3113 or Crime Solvers at (410) 548-1776.
