Racine police are looking for three male suspects who robbed a candy store at gunpoint Wednesday night.
Officers were called at 8:49 p.m. Wednesday to Your Mini Sweet Shop, 1132 S. Memorial Dr., for a report of an armed robbery. Employees said three men walked into the store – one of whom had a handgun – and demanded money.
They left with an unknown amount of cash from the register as well as the employee’s wallet, money clip and merchandise from the store.
There were no injuries and suspect descriptions were not available at the time Racine police issued a press release about the incident.
This is the second time this year the Sweet Shop has been robbed. Last January, Nickendrick Jackson, 27, also took cash from the register and items from the store. He remains in the Racine County Jail on a $25,000 cash bond. Court records list a trial date of Oct. 4.
