Investigators with the Dothan Police Department say they have possible suspects in custody after a Monday night armed robbery.
They say it happened shortly after 9:30 at the Inland Gas Station at the intersection of Cottonwood Road and Mimosa Drive.
According to a witness, two black men with bandanas over their faces came into the store and demanded the clerk hand over money at gunpoint.
The clerk obliged, and the men then left.
Two other shoppers were inside the gas station market at the time in addition to the female clerk.
One eyewitness, who didn’t want to share their name, tells WTVY, the suspects looked just like someone out of a movie.
"The clerk she said watch out they're coming. I turned around and looked. There were two black guys entering the store. Both had guns drawn on us. I turned and walked behind the thing right there, did what they said. The dude jumped up on the counter and took the money in less than a minute."
