GREENVILLE — Two suspects are in custody following an early morning armed robbery at Greenville’s Walmart store.

At approximately 7:19 a.m. Wednesday morning, Greenville Police Department officers responded to the Greenville Walmart, 1501 Wagner Avenue, on a report of an armed robbery.

Investigating the incident, officers discovered a female subject had entered the store and a short time later approached two clerks, stating she had a gun and demanding money. An undisclosed amount of money and property was taken by the suspect who then fled from the scene in a vehicle.
