Men Use Machete and Gun to Rob Store

OCTOBER 25, 2005 -- Officers say two men used a gun and a machete to rob a store in New Hanover County. It happened around 8:00 Monday night at the Farm Fresh Market on Carolina Beach Road.

Authorities say the men walked in with their weapons and demanded cash from the register. Officers say when there was only a small amount of money in the drawer, they broke a case and stole a power drill. As the two were leaving, authorities say they fired a shot into the store, but no one was hurt.

Officers say the men are in their 20's and about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a slim to medium build.  They say one is white and the other is possibly Hispanic.
