The two suspects are identified as as 47-year-old Jeffrey Hurd and 35-year-old Scott Roberts. Both are considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on their whereabouts should call state police in Augusta at 624-7076 or 911.
Hurd, who troopers say was brandishing a handgun during the robbery, is 5 feet 6 inches tall. Roberts is 5-foot-11. Both men weigh over 200 pounds.
Both men will be charged with robbery and impersonating a police officer.
Trooper Elisha Fowlie said the third man involved in the robbery, whose photos from a surveillance camera were not clear, does not have an arrest warrant issued for him at this time.
