West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Newly-released surveillance footage shows just what happened inside a local payday loan shop when two armed robbers came in demanding money.
Now, the ATF is offering a hefty reward for information about the case.
The ATF says it will give five-thousand dollars for information that leads to the conviction of two masked men who robbed the West Fargo Mister Money on Main Avenue November 12th.
Take a look at this footage from the store's security camera.
Looking at the video, you can just about imagine how intense this moment was for these two store employees.
Kyle Ramsey/Mister Money Manager: "It's intense for anyone to have a gun pulled on them."
Mister Money manager Kyle Ramsey is the man on the ground, he and another employee reacted the only way they could when two masked men burst into the store with handguns.
Ramsey: "We just followed what they wanted us to do, but when you're face down on the ground, you don't know if they're just here for the money or they are in a state of mind that they don't want to take a chance of leaving any witnesses, so you just don't know."
It has been just over a month since the robbery, and no arrests.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms is now offering a $5,000 reward for information.
They take it case-by-case to decide whether to offer a reward, and how much, looking at how likely the case is to be solved, and the violence.
Robert Schmidt/ATF: "We have two people walking in with handguns, which could have turned out a lot worse. So, the important thing that we have to think about is getting these guys off the street as soon as possible."
Ramsey says he is confident that the hard work of the West Fargo Police and ATF will pay off, and that the reward will get people talking.
Ramsey: "I think it will make a huge difference. Someone out there knows something. The most important thing is to get these guys off the streets so nobody's else's establishment has to go through what we went through."
On the day of the robbery, West Fargo police described the suspects as two black males about five-foot-six.
