ORANGE, Texas — The Orange County Sheriff's Office is looking for two men who allegedly robbed a convenience store in the Little Cypress-Mauriceville area. 

The robbery happened at 7:22 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8 at M&S Grocery, in the 1000 block of FM 1130.

The clerk told police two white men with black handguns came into the store and demanded money, Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Janois Grizzaffi said in a release. The men also took several packs of cigarettes and the store's cordless phone and the clerk's Samsung cellphone as well as the money.
