LAUDERHILL, Fla. - Lauderhill police are searching for two men who robbed a smoke shop last month at gunpoint.

The armed robbery was reported about 11 p.m. June 19 at Smoke Time at 5422 N. University Drive.

Police said the robbers pulled out guns and demanded money from a store clerk.

Surveillance video shows one of the thieves striking the clerk with his gun before they leave the store.

Police said the men got away with about $500 in cash and other items.

"To get taken advantage of, that's always the worst part, the worst feeling," Smoke Time co-owner Reef Lakhani said. "And number 2, you know, you want your employees to feel safe at work and something like that happens." 

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Detective Chad Williams at 954-497-4700 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
