NEW ORLEANS — The NOPD is looking for two people caught on camera robbing a dollar store cashier at gunpoint in Algiers over the weekend.

Police officials announced Monday they were searching for a pair of armed robbers who they said entered the Family Dollar store at 4840 General Myers Ave. Saturday, April 13 and fled with a backpack full of cash. 

According to NOPD reports, the subjects walked into the store around 9:20 p.m. Saturday wearing black ski masks and quickly stuck handguns in a cashier's face, demanding they open the registers. 

They then emptied cash into their bag and ran out of the building and through the parking lot before disappearing, officials said.
