THIEVES GET 4Gs AT MONEY STORE

Detectives are investigating an armed robbery that took place Tuesday evening involving a local money exchange agency where thieves got away with $4,000 in cash.

According to the 69th Precinct Detective Squad, two men entered the Chou Chou Money Service at 9106 Flatlands Avenue at about 7 p.m. and, while one man took out a black handgun and pointed it to the lone female clerk on duty, another man, with a knife, demanded money and then proceeded to rob the store, which also serves as a travel agency.

Police said the pair then left, but the clerk, who was not hurt, did not know whether they fled on foot or in a car.

The description of the suspects from the clerk described them as black and one wore a dark hoodie.

Anyone with information is asked to call the 69th Pct. Detective Squad at 1-718-257-6215.

All calls will be kept strictly confidential. Charles Rogers
