WEST BOUNTIFUL — Police in Davis County are searching for three suspects who robbed a West Bountiful gas station at gunpoint Thursday morning.

Police say that around 3 a.m. Thursday, three males entered a 7-Eleven store located at 1109 W. 500 South, with one brandishing a handgun, according to a press release from the West Bountiful Police Department.

Two suspects jumped over the counter and began taking vaping-related products and “appeared to focus on the Juul pods,” according to the release. The third suspect pointed a black handgun at the clerk and demanded money from the register.

The suspects reportedly filled a bag with an unknown amount of money and merchandise from the gas station and fled on foot. Police say that surveillance footage shows that one of the suspects appears to have a leg injury, with the suspect reportedly hopping on one foot while leaving the store.

The first suspect is described as a male between the ages of 17-20 who is white or Hispanic. He is approximately six feet tall with a slender build and appeared to be wearing a bracelet or have tattoos on each wrist. He was wearing a dark or blue hooded sweatshirt, black pants, black shoes and a black ski mask.

The second suspect is also described as a male who could be between the ages of 17-20 years old who is white or Hispanic. He is approximately six feet tall with a slender build. He was reportedly wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt with the word “Colorado” and mountains on the sweatshirt. He was also wearing blue pants, black shoes and a gray and black ski mask with a gray ball on top.

The third and final suspect, whom the clerk identified as “Black,” is a male between the ages of 17-20 years old and is roughly 5’ 5” tall with an average build. He was wearing a green camouflage hooded jacket and a black t-shirt and red track pants. He was reportedly wearing only one shoe, which was on his right foot. His left foot only had a black sock on, and he was carrying a metal crutch after leaving the gas station.

One of the suspects also had a blue and black drawstring bag that had the words “BD South Titans” on the front, according to police. One also had a light blue camouflage or a tie dye backpack.
