URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — Police want help solving an armed robbery. It happened about 11:30 pm, Saturday, November 25, at Lucky Star Food and Liquor, in the 2100-block of East University.
Three males entered the store wearing masks and held the employee at gunpoint. They fled the scene with money, a black Cobra GPS and scratch off lottery tickets.

The suspect holding the gun wore a black cloth on his face, a red stocking cap, black-colored hooded jacket, white gloves, dark pants and black or gray shoes.
