Crime doesn't pay, but your tip could.

Crimestoppers has $500 for the person who can give Jonesboro police the names of the men who robbed a Dollar General store earlier this week.

We showed the video earlier this week, but there's something you did not see.

As the suspects come into the store on North Church, they pointed a gun at the clerk behind the counter. They took her back to the office.

At some point, the clerk goes back out front and customers come into the store.  

While a customer is at the counter, the armed robbers are in the office looking for more valuables. 

It appears that the clerk never told the customer what was happening just feet away.

The customers left and about 30 seconds later and the robbers ran out of the store.

We never got a good look at the covered faces of the suspect but someone besides the two suspects knows who did this.

That information is worth $500.  Call in that tip right now to Crimestoppers at 935-STOP. 

JPD is searching for two people this week on Warrant Watch.

Martin Gonzalez Jr. has the unlucky 13 this week. Of those 13 warrants, 11 are for contempt of court.

Byron Griffin just beats him out with 15 warrants.  Thirteen of those are for contempt of court.

If you can help police find Byron Griffin or Martin Gonzalez Jr., it's worth money.

Call in that tip to Crimestoppers at 935-STOP or you can text it to 274637.

In the text message, type 935stop as one word followed by your tip.

You will get a message back with your anonymous tip number. That number is yours to keep for any future reward.
