Two cartons of cigarettes were the only items taken late Sunday evening in an apparent armed robbery at the Hillsboro Walmart, authorities said, and two suspects remain at large.

Hillsboro Police Chief Darrin Goudy told The Times-Gazette that police are “pursuing some leads” on the robbery, which took place at roughly 10:40 p.m. Sunday night.

Goudy said witnesses told police that two males wearing ski masks entered Walmart around that time, and one allegedly brandished a handgun before the pair took two cartons of cigarettes from the bullpen area where tobacco products are sold.

An investigation is ongoing, according to Goudy. No injuries were reported.

No further information was immediately available.
