Two men are being sought in a robbery at a Walmart store in Fleming Island on Tuesday night, according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said the men went into the store on County Road 220 with Walmart bags concealed under their clothing.

Once inside, they placed multiple remote control helicopters in the bags and walked out of the store without paying, deputies said.

When approached by security personnel, one of the men displayed a firearm in his waistband, deputies said. For that reason, detectives consider the pair armed and dangerous.

They said the two men may have been accompanied by a woman and likely used a four-door gold sedan to flee the area.

Anyone with any information about the robbers' identities is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 904-264-6512 or Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
