LAWTON, OK (KSWO) – Lawton police are trying to identify two people who were caught on surveillance video robbing a pawn shop at gunpoint.

The robbery happened Jan. 2 at Rocket Pawn at West Gore Boulevard and 25th Street. The surveillance video shows two masked men dressed in all black. They entered the store and held one employee at gunpoint and made another employee help while they filled a backpack with several items. They were in the store for less than two minutes.

Lawton Police Detective Nancy Lombardo says the men need to be caught for the sake of the community.

"These people were armed. It happened during broad daylight. They are obviously a danger, not only to our businesses, but to our local community and we would definitely like to apprehend the individuals responsible for this crime," said Det. Lombardo.

The owners of the pawn shop say they simply want their items returned. They have promised to match the Crime Stoppers reward for any information leading to an arrest.

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 580-355-INFO (4636).
