Two sisters are accused of robbing a San Juan County convenience store at gunpoint, firing their rifle in an ensuing scuffle, speeding away from the scene and running their truck off the road as they fled all with two babies in the backseat.
In charges filed Tuesday, police wrote that the women carried a .22 rifle into the Sunrise Store near Montezuma Creek about 1:30 p.m. July 3, pointed the rifle at a man in the store and demanded money.
The women took a 30-pack of Miller High Life and went outside, followed by the man, police wrote. The man wrestled with the women over the rifle, which was fired twice, police wrote. One of the women told the other to shoot the man but then they fled in a red Dodge Durango, police wrote. The man said he could hear a baby crying in the Durango while he was wrestling with the women over the gun.
