Marion Police believe the duo that robbed the Village Pantry at 9th and Miller Avenue early Tuesday were the same two that robbed it a week ago.
Two armed men walked into the store early Tuesday morning and stole several cartons of cigarettes. One man was armed with an assault rifle and held the clerk at bay while the other robber grabbed the cigarettes.
The same thing happened at the same convenience store one week earlier. Both times one man was armed with an assault rifle while the other man grabbed the cigarettes. The descriptions of the robbers also match those of the April 15th holdup.
No one was injured in either robbery and Marion Police are still searching for the robbers.
