Seneca police are trying to extradite two people from Oklahoma who are believed to be involved in an armed robbery.  Seneca police say the crime happened after two this morning.

Seneca's police chief says a police officer was driving by the store and noticed a car backed-in on the side of the convenience store, located on Washington Avenue.  Police say the car left the store at a high rate of speed, but the officer wasn't able to stop the car before crossing the Oklahoma state line.

That's when the officer learned two suspects in the car were allegedly involved in an armed robbery at the convenience store.

Police say the two suspects, one male and one female, were located and arrested at a convenience store in Miami, Oklahoma, and efforts are underway to get them back to Missouri.  No one was injured.

 Police have identified the suspects as 30-year-old Leslie Ann Beasley of Joplin and 38-year-old Christopher Shannon DeWeese of Webb City.  Beasley is charged with first degree robbery and driving while suspended.  DeWeese is charged with first degree robbery and armed criminal action.
