LOUISA, Va. (WVIR) - The town of Louisa Police Department says it has made an arrest in a convenience store robbery with a fruit-flavored twist.

Louisa P.D. took to Facebook on Saturday to ask for the public’s assistance in locating two suspects wanted in connection with a larceny at a Sheetz convenience store on May 6. The seedy characters were caught on the store’s security cameras wearing hollowed-out watermelons with eye-holes as masks. The suspects arrived at the store just after 11:30 p.m. in a lifted black Toyota Tacoma pick-up truck.

It is unknown what the robbers stole, or how much money they escaped with.
