MIDLAND - Two armed robbers remain on the run after attempting to rob a liquor store. The robbery happened just after five on Wednesday evening at Pinkies Liquor Store on north Big Spring. 

Police say two masked Hispanic men went into the store, both of them toting guns, and demanded money from the register. Someone else came from the back of the store and startled the would-be robbers before they could make off with the cash. The two fled in a red SUV.

Police now believe one of the suspects is 32-year-old Phillip Garcia of Big Spring. He was positively identified by one of the witnesses and police have an arrest warrant for him.

Big Spring Police have notified MPD of a similar Aggravated Robbery at 10:00 p.m. in Big Spring with two suspects in a red SUV.
