Good Fortune is Robbed at Gunpoint over the Weekend

A pair of armed thieves made off with almost one thousand dollars in various denominations after robbing Good Fortune at gunpoint.  The proprietor of the establishment in the Coney Drive area was relieved of about four hundred dollars in cash, while a customer was robbed of an additional six hundred dollars, as well as other personal items she had on her.  Images captured the thieves as they made their way into the store and carried out the robbery. While an arrest is yet to be made, police say they are actively seeking two persons of interest.
