The two white male suspects demanded money from the clerk at 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the Exxon-Mobil Express Mart in the 1740 block of Texas Ave., according to information from the Bridge City Police Department. The two left in a silver passenger vehicle. The clerk then contacted police.
Officers with the BCPD later found the vehicle in the 700 block of Texas Ave.

Their bond is set at $75,000 each.
