TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Pima County Sheriff's Department is asking for the public's help locating three suspects in the robbery of a Quik Mart on the west side.

The three suspects are described as teens from 15 to 17 years of age, all 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 with slender builds.  Two are Hispanic, one with black bowl cut hair and brown eyes, the third is white with brown hair.
