Pima County deputies are looking for two suspects who brandished a handgun at a convenience store clerk and made off with less than $20 and a bag of chips last week.

The men walked into the Quik Mart at 3250 W. Cortaro Farms Rd., at around 3:50 a.m. on Thursday and demanded money from the cashier while one brandished a handgun, said Sgt. Dawn Barkman, spokeswoman for the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

The pair took "less than $20 ... and a bag of chips," said Quik Mart Vice President Shelly Little-Gibbons.

They fled the store in an unknown direction, Barkman said.

The suspects are both described as African American. One was wearing dark clothing with a baseball cap and the other was wearing basketball shorts, a gray shirt and a University of Arizona baseball cap, Barkman said.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
