Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office deputies are searching for three unidentified people who held up a Denham Springs convenience store early Wednesday before making away with cash from an ATM.

LPSO spokeswoman Lori Steele said the three people, believed to be male, entered the Murphy Express on La. 16 and Arnold Road around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. 

They were armed with tools and gained access to cash in an ATM on the property, Sheriff Jason Ard said. Investigators do not yet know how exactly how much cash was stolen or what tools were used. 

The three robbers kept their bodies and faces covered except their eyes, and investigators are searching through available video surveillance to further identify them and a vehicle they may have used to flee.

Anyone with information is asked to contact LPSO at 225-686-2241 or Crime Stoppers at 225-344-7867.
