Halifax RCMP responded to an armed robbery at a convenience store on Highway 7 in Lake Echo over the weekend.

Police say three males entered Clarks Convenience store on Saturday at 9:30 p.m., with two of the suspects carrying sawed-off shotguns.

Police say all three men wore gloves and bandannas over their faces and threatened the store employees.

The suspects made off with an undisclosed amount of money and cigarettes. Police say they fled the store in a white vehicle, possibly a Grand Am-type car, west on Highway 7.
