Yakima County Sheriff’s detectives have released surveillance photos of two people accused of robbing a Terrace Heights convenience store early Monday.

The photos show the robbers, the lower parts of their faces covered, in the 7-Eleven, 3908 Terrace Heights Drive. Detectives are also asking other businesses and homeowners in the area to check their own surveillance video systems for images that could provide additional evidence, said sheriff’s spokesman Casey Schilperoort.

A store clerk told deputies that two people came into the store around 12:30 a.m. Monday and demanded money, according to the sheriff’s news release. The robbers held their hands in their clothes in a way to imply that they had guns, Schilperoort said.

The pair then ran from the store, the release said. Deputies and police from Selah and Moxee responded to the call.
