University Place Police are searching for two men who robbed the AM/PM early this morning.

Two men walked into the convenience store on Bridgeport Way and 27th Avenue West about 1 a.m., today. One of the men carried a black, semi-automatic handgun and held the cashier at gunpoint, Chief Mike Blair said.

The men took an undisclosed amount of cash and Newport Menthol cigarettes.

A K-9 unit tracked the men two and a half blocks northeast of the business, where they had fled. They were, however, caught on the store's surveilance camera.
