The Lima Police Department is looking for information on some suspects that robbed the Rite Aid on the corner of Robb Avenue and West Street late Thursday night.

According to Detective Steve Stechschulte, three black men entered the store just before 10 p.m. Thursday night. All of them had guns and were wearing masks and hooded sweatshirts. They detained the employees and customers in the store while they took items from the pharmacy and an undisclosed amount of cash from the cash register. The suspects got into a late model Toyota truck driven by a white man and drove off. They did leave items behind that could provide clues to the identity.

"Looks like we have some pretty good leads on it. We found potentially one of the masks that were worn, so we're pretty confident that may yield some physical evidence, potentially DNA evidence that will lead us to a suspect. We also have several good witnesses from in the area and actually around the store that are providing some good leads as well," commented Stechschulte.
