The Pima County Sheriff's Department is looking for three young men who robbed an East Side Circle K in April.

At around 11 p.m. on April 25, the suspects walked into the store at 11271 E. Tanque Verde Rd., and tried to buy drinks, but realized they did not have the money to pay for them, PCSD spokeswoman Deputy Renee Carlson said in a news release Tuesday.

One of the suspects walked behind the counter and ordered the clerk to the ground. The three took cigarettes and an unknown amount of cash from the register. They were last seen walking east from the store, Carlson said.

They are all described as between 17 and 22 years old, white and weighing about 160 pounds. One was wearing a green jacket, green shirt, khaki pants, black shoes and a black hat. Another was wearing blue jeans, a black and white shirt, and a red hat. The third suspect was wearing a black, white and green jacket, black jeans, white shoes, a black, white and green shirt, and was carrying a backpack, Carlson said.

Anyone with information should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
