Three young men have been arrested, following investigation of an armed robbery that resulted in stolen cigarettes.

Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman said three Florence area juveniles, two aged 16 and one 17, were arrested Monday. The three are suspected of entering the Florence Town Pump convenience store at about 4:30 Sunday morning and demanding money. During the incident, one of the suspects pointed a shotgun at the clerk. When no money was forthcoming, the suspects took several packages of cigarettes and left.

The three are in custody, awaiting their court appearance.
