The ExxonMobil store, located on Lanier Avenue East, now has plywood covering up the gaping hole two suspects created, Channel 2 reported. A third suspect waited outside in a getaway car.

Fayetteville police said the suspects ran straight for the cash register, stole money and cigarettes and then all three left, the news station reported.
