PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Three Hispanic men remain on the loose nearly nine months after they stole items from behind the counter of a Phoenix-area Shell gas station.
Silent Witness released surveillance photos in an attempt to re-ignite awareness of the crime and find the suspects.
The incident happened on Dec. 3 just after 1:45 p.m. at 5448 S. Central Ave.
Two of the men were wearing black T-shirts while the third suspect wore a white one. One of them was wearing a black baseball cap. No other physical descriptions were provided.
Surveillance video shows the three men one by one making their way behind the counter. The clerk believed one of them had a knife in his waistband, police said.
The clerk slips away as the men grab items off shelves and stick them in bags.
Before taking off, one of the suspects pulls off as many lottery tickets as he can.
All three fled on foot through the parking lot and down the street. They haven't been heard from or seen since.
