Two York City residents made off with more than $1,700 during a gas station robbery in Wrightsville on Sunday night -- but they didn't get far, police said.

Wrightsville Police said Quame W. Rodriguez and Nigel A. Woodyard Jr. were wearing masks when they ran into the Sunoco at 802 Hellam Street about 8:20 p.m.

They forced a clerk to the front counter at gunpoint, then took $1,741 cash from the store's cash registers and from a cabinet under the registers, according to charging documents.

Wrightsville Police broadcast a description of the robbers to area police departments.

A short time later, Springettsbury Township Police Cpl. Greg Hadfield spotted and pulled over a tan Mercury Mountaineer with three people inside, including Rodriguez and Woodyard, documents state.
