ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - Two men suspected of robbing a 7-11 convenience store at gunpoint weren't on the run for long thanks in part to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office K9 Kendo.
Deputies were called to the store at 170 N. Nova Road in Ormond Beach on Wednesday night after receiving a call about an armed robbery. When they arrived, they say the store clerk told them that two men wearing masks pulled out a gun and took money from the register.
Last night, K-9 Endo went looking for 2 suspects who fled recklessly after an armed robbery at an Ormond Beach 7-Eleven & ran into the woods in Flagler County.— Volusia Co. Sheriff (@VolusiaSheriff) February 21, 2019

The Sheriff's Office says when deputies, along with an Ormond Beach detective, tried stopping the getaway vehicle, the suspects sped up and eluded them. Authorities say the suspects vehicle ended up crashing in Bunnell and they took off on foot.
