GEORGE, Wash. -- Surveillance video has been released of four masked and armed men robbing Sandoval's Food Store in George Thursday night.  Authorities hoped the video would lead to tips that would help them track down the robbery suspects.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office said four gunmen entered the store on the 400 block of Frontage Road around 8 p.m. Feb 13., forced the two store clerks to hand over the store’s cash, and then tied them up. A customer who entered the store during the robbery was also tied up.   There were no reports of injuries.

Authorities said the suspects took off in a black 2002 Chevy Avalanche which the men had parked in front of the store during the robbery.  The vehicle was found abandoned a short distance away.  Investigators believe the suspects likely took one or more vehicles from that point to escape.

Authorities also said the Chevy Avalanche was reported stolen out of the Tri-Cities so the suspects may have been headed back to that area.

Anyone who recognizes any features or clothing about the men in the video is asked to call the Grant County Sheriff's Office at 509-762-1160 or send information to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
