Convenience Store Robbers Strike In Columbia, Spring Hill

CREATED Jul 8, 2014

SPRING HILL, Tenn. – Authorities need help identifying two men who robbed a Spring Hill convenience store after an unsuccessful attempt at a Columbia market early Tuesday morning.

The Columbia and Spring Hill Police Departments said they were working together to investigate the two crimes.

Columbia Police said two men entered the Quik Mart #34 on Nashville Highway in the Neapolis community just before 3 a.m. One of the men had a gun, and demanded money from the clerk. The other came in the store, but did not have a gun.

The clerk pressed the silent alarm, and both men ran out without getting anything.

A witness told police they fled the scene in a dark colored car, going north on Nashville Highway.

Then around 3:17 a.m., Spring Hill Police said the same two men went into the Daily’s convenience store at the corner of Main Street and Buckner Road. One of them pulled out a gun, and demanded cash from the clerk. The other allegedly stood guard over another clerk who was outside the building.

Both suspects then fled on foot behind the store, but police did not know if they got into a vehicle.

Police said the first suspect was wearing a white mask or material over his face, while the other one had an American flag bandanna covering his face.

Anyone with information was asked to contact Columbia Police SAFE Tip Line at 931-380-2930 or Spring Hill Police at 931-486-3269.
