ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The Asheville Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying suspects and a vehicle after an armed robbery at a gas station Saturday morning.

Police said a man and woman are being sought in the case.

The robbery happened around 6:30 a.m. at the Citi Stop on Patton Avenue.

Police said a man wearing a dark hoodie with a white eagle emblem on it, light brown jeans, work style boots, a ball cap, and a black bandanna entered the store, pulled out a pistol and demanded money and lottery tickets.

The man left the store with cash, $420 worth of lottery tickets, and 8 packs of Marlboro cigarettes.

Later that morning at 11:20 a.m., police said a woman cashed in $390 of winnings from the stolen lottery tickets at Norm’s Minit Mart in Hendersonville.

The woman was seen getting in and out of the same black four door vehicle used in the earlier robbery, police said.

Police ask anyone with any information on the identities or whereabouts of the suspects to call the Asheville Police Department at (828) 252-1110 or Buncombe County Crime Stoppers at (828) 255-5050.
