Police say pair took off in stolen car after taking cash
Lawton police are still searching for the identities of two robbery suspects who allegedly burst into a southwest Lawton business Wednesday for cash and took off in a stolen car.
Lawton police first started investigating the case around 11:15 a.m. when one of the employees at Indian Nation Wholesale, 3602 SW 11th, was able to get free and call for help.
LPD Capt. Craig Akard said two black men came into the business, at least one brandishing a firearm, and demanded money. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash, the two left the business and stole a PT Cruiser from the parking lot as a getaway car.
The maroon PT Cruiser was abandoned in a hurry at Southwest 10th Street and Summit Avenue, where the two suspects reportedly clambered into a black, short-bed pickup truck with purple detail.
According to dispatchers, the vehicle was last seen by bank employees at Southwest 6th Street and Gore Boulevard headed west.
