Robbers Lose Nerve, Flee Cheyenne Store
Cheyenne Police are looking for a pair of suspects in the attempted armed robbery of a local convenience store/smoke shop on Friday.
Officer Dan Long says a man entered Pablo’s Smoke Shop at 416 Central Avenue at 6:30 am Friday. Long says the man was brandishing a handgun and demanded money while a woman stood by the entrance to the store. But Long says ” they hit the panic button” and the suspects fled the store without any money. No one was injured in the incident.

The suspects were last seen driving south on Central Avenue in a dark colored mid 1990′s Buick Lesabre. Long is asking anyone with information on this crime to call the Police Department at 637-6510 or anonymously through Silent Witness at 638-TIPS.
