MARIES COUNTY - Maries County Sheriff's Office released security footage Wednesday night of an armed robbery that happened at Vichy Wye Restaurant on July 7.
The video shows two suspects with hats on and clothing tied around their faces. The two male robbers entered the restaurant with a handgun.

The post said deputies are continuing to follow up on leads and have identified possible suspects, but they are still asking for the public's help.
