Second Circle K store robbery

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – Shreveport police are searching for the suspect that robbed a Circle K store just before midnight last night.

The male suspect wearing a white mask, entered the Circle K store in the 300 block of Southfield Rd. and demanded all the Newport and Kool cigarettes. The witness said the man ordered the employees into a back room where cartons of cigarettes are stored and handed the clerk a black garbage bag where he put the cigarettes.
