Posted January 18, 2014 at 9:39 PM CST:  Joplin police are investigating an armed robbery at a local convenience store.  Officers received a call at 7:43 this evening for a robbery in progress at the Snack Attack, located at 4302 South Hearnes Boulevard.  

The store was closed for a short time while police investigated some evidence left behind at the scene.  Police say right now, they are unable to release details on how much was stolen or the type of weapon used.

"We're collecting evidence from the scene, video evidence and other evidence that was left at the scene, and we're following up with some witnesses that were here," says Sgt. Jared Delzell with the Joplin Police Department.

Police are still looking for the suspect, but did not release any descriptions.  Officials plan to release more details of the incident later.
