Police seeking third suspect in strong-armed robbery

St. Francis - Police are looking for a third suspect who was involved in a robbery at Advance America Cash Advance Center, 4698 S. Whitnall Ave., about 9:30 a.m. Nov. 6.

According to a news release from the St. Francis Police Department:

The men obtained an undisclosed amount of money from an employee leaving with a bank deposit bag. No weapons were displayed during the incident.
