Police are actively searching for two men in Detroit Lakes after DL Tobacco was robbed Thursday afternoon.

We're told one robber pointed a gun at the cashier and demanded money then took off. When police got there the robbers were already gone, and they got away with the money.

Neighbors walking down the street are surprised to find out that DL Tobacco is closed for the day. I spoke with witnesses and they tell me that this place was swarming with cops around 3:30 p.m. They say the police are looking for two men who robbed the store at gun point, and apparently they are driving a white Ford Taurus.

"And I come around the corner, I only live a few blocks down, there was all kinds of squad cars here, and then I went home, and I asked what was going on, and they said that the smoke shop got robbed, and they were looking for a white Taurus," says Melissa Eagleshield, who lives nearby, and saw the action.

Reporter asks, "So the police are stopping every white ford Taurus that they see?"

"Yeah,” says Eagleshield, “Over the scanner that what they are saying, another white Taurus, another white Taurus, but that's what they are looking for."

Neighbors walking down the street tell me they are glad no one was hurt, but they are surprised that something like this happened in their neighborhood.

Officers from Detroit Lakes, Frazee, and Becker County are helping in the search.
