PRESTON, Idaho — Police officers in Preston are asking for the public’s help identifying two boys suspected of robbing a gas station over the weekend. The armed robbery reportedly occurred early Sunday morning at the Last Chance Convenience Store and Subway Restaurant.

Preston City Police Chief Dan McCammon said the store clerk reported the two boys entered the business around 5 a.m. They brandished a weapon and demanded the employee give them some vaping products.

The clerk allegedly refused and the boys fled the store without taking anything.

The police department has released a photo of the two suspects. Both are wearing masks and hoodies, partially concealing their identities.

McCammon said police have further pictures and video, showing the boys faces. They are not releasing them though because of the suspect’s ages.

Investigators are following up on several leads and believe the individuals involved are local.

Anyone with further information about Sunday’s robbery or the boy’s identities are asked to contact the Preston City Police Department at 208-852-2433.

    At least they were wearing masks. Dr. Fauci would be proud.

      This isn’t a crime, it’s a peaceful protest. You boys wear a BLM shirt next time and take whatever you want. You’ll be just fine.

    For showing a weapon… Lock them up for life. Kids like these take away law abiding citizens rights to weapons to protect self, family and home. Absolutely No Excuses. They will do just fine in prison forever.
