Niles Police have released dramatic surveillance video captured during an armed robbery three weeks ago at the Chicago Road Admiral Gas Station in hopes that somebody might be able to help identify the two gunmen who burst into the station, fired their weapons and stole cash from the night clerk on duty at the time.
As reported earlier this month, the bold midnight armed robbery which had two, essentially masked, gunmen both firing their weapons inside and out of the gas station they held up has Niles Police scratching their heads and seeking the help of the general public in catching the thieves.
On Sunday, August 11th, at just minutes before midnight, the Niles Police Dispatch Center received a 911 call that the Admiral Gas Station located at 640 Chicago Road in the City of Niles, had just been robbed.
Two unknown men raced into the gas station wearing gloves and clothing that concealed their faces. Both men were holding semi-automatic firearms and one of them vaulted the front counter in a single jump and menaced the night clerk to get her to turn over the money. The other watched the door and checked the rest of the store before pointing a gun at the clerk as well. After taking cash from the cash drawer they both fled the gas station on foot.
Police Detectives say that both men fired their guns both inside and outside of the gas station, but, fortunately, nobody was injured during the hold up.
The newly released surveillance shows several different angles from cameras in the station at 640 Chicago Road in Niles. You can watch all three videos by clicking the links below.
