Suspects rob Isle of Wight 7-Eleven at gunpoint


ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — Deputies in Isle of Wight County are searching for two suspects who robbed a 7-Eleven store at gunpoint early Friday morning.

The Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Office said two men armed with handguns entered the store on Carrsville Highway and forced the clerk to open the register at gunpoint.

According to the sheriff’s office, the suspects took cash, cigarettes and other items from the store shelves before fleeing the scene toward the Springdale apartment complex. 

Investigators believe these suspects also were behind a robbery back in August at the same store.
