The Leavenworth Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying people who reportedly were involved in an attempted robbery at a pawn shop.


The Police Department has released security camera images of the people as well as a vehicle they reportedly used.


Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department, said the attempted robbery occurred May 8 at First City Pawn and Jewelry, 3501 S. Fourth St.


Three people entered the store. One of them brandished a handgun.


“They demanded a firearm,” Nicodemus said.


At some point, an alarm was triggered. The robbers ended up running out the store.


Nicodemus said it is believed that a fourth person had remained with a vehicle outside of the business.


Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective Laura Flynn at 913-758-2942. People also can provide information anonymously by calling the Leavenworth Police Department’s clue line at 913-682-CLUE (2583).
