About 6:10 a.m. Monday, two suspects went into Taco Bueno at SW 19 Street and Interstate 35 in Moore, holding the manager at gunpoint.

“Two black males entered the store while he was counting money. They demanded the money. One of them produced a hand gun,” Moore police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said.

It’s described as a black pistol. Lewis said the manager of Taco Bueno couldn’t get a good description of the suspects because at least one of them was wearing a blue bandana that covered his face.

“The subject placed the pistol to the side of his head and ordered him to get in the freezer,” according to the police report.

The manager was able to press the emergency button to make contact with police.

During that time, the other suspect was assisting with the robbery. The suspects stole cash earnings from the day before. The manager was the only person in the store and he was unharmed.

Police are hoping surveillance video in the store will help get a better description of the suspects.

The two suspects have not been found. News 9 reached out to Taco Bueno but did not receive a response by time of publication.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Moore Police Department at 793-5171.
