According to police, three men entered the Fork Union Family Dollar with guns and demanded money.
Right now police have two suspects, but the search for the third continues.
Police say, the three men robbed got away with cash, a cashier's purse, and a customer's wallet.
Last night, Henrico County Police arrested Cortez Smith and his father, Kendall after reports of suspicious activity at a convenience store.
During an investigation police found the missing contents from the Fluvanna store and think they may be involved in other robberies in three other counties.
“Louisa had an armed robbery at the Ferncliff Market I know that Goochland had an armed robbery as well so we believe that the individuals may potentially be suspects in other offenses,” said Fluvanna County Sheriff, Ryant Washington.
Right now the father and son are being held at Henrico County Jail with bond...as far as the third suspect...police say they don't believe he lives in Fluvanna County.
If you have any information regarding the robbery you are asked to call the Fluvanna County Sheriff's Office at 434-589-8211. A $2500 reward being offered.
