Police release surveillance of convenience store robbers

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Police are hoping surveillance images of the people who broke into a downtown Charleston convenience store and stole a computer and hundreds of dollars of cigarettes will lead to their arrest.

According to Charleston police, the Martha's Quick Stop on King Street was robbed Oct. 6 shortly before 6 a.m. Officers said the store's front glass had been shattered with a brick.{}

The store's manager ran through inventory and found that 60 packs of Newport cigarettes had been stolen, valued at $325, as well as a $2,5000 cash register system containing cash.

The report states the cost to replace the door would be around $450.

Surveillance footage shows two black men breaking into the store and stealing the goods before running.

One of the men is wearing a College of Charleston ball cap.
