Police say they hope surveillance photos will help them identify two men who robbed a Brackenridge gas station early Thursday.The pair, one with a handgun, robbed the FueLand store at the corner of Mile Lock Lane and First Avenue about 5:30 a.m. No one was hurt, police said.A clerk was in the store when one of the men put a bag of potato chips on the counter and reached into a pocket for money. While the clerk was opening the cash drawer, the bandit pulled a silver-and-black handgun from his waistband, Brackenridge police Chief Jamie Bock said.He said the accomplice watched the door when the gunman grabbed the cash drawer away from the clerk.

Bock said the men were last seen running up Mile Lock Lane.

Allegheny County detectives are investigating and sent the photos to the crime lab.

The store returned to business Friday morning.

“Everyone is fine,” a manager said later in the day.

Anyone with information is asked to call Allegheny County Police at 412-473-1257.
