Two Suspects Wanted in Salem Robbery

July 20, 2009 00:00


The Salem Police Department, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, is asking for your help in identifying two armed robbery suspects.

On Tuesday, July 14, 2009, at approximately 1:59 a.m., the Scoreboard Tavern, located at 2290 Front Street in Salem, was robbed by two males armed with semi-automatic handguns. The suspects entered the tavern and contacted several patrons while inside the establishment. They then stole cash from the business and the video poker lottery machines.

The two suspects held several patrons at gunpoint outside the tavern and stole one victim’s cell phone prior to fleeing the scene. The suspects fled in a southeast direction away from the business.

One suspect is a white male, with pale skin, 5’10” tall and 160-180 pounds. He was wearing blue jeans, a black zip-up hooded sweatshirt and a black ski mask and was armed with a silver semi-automatic handgun. The second suspect is a white male, 5’8” tall and 160-180 pounds. He was wearing blue jeans, a white hooded sweatshirt and a white ski mask and was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357) or leave a tip online at
