The Advance America payday and title lending outlet in the Plaza at Landmark shopping center in Lincolnia was hit with an armed robbery on April 6, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

Two men entered the business at 6244-J Little River Turnpike at about 6 p.m. One held a gun while the other demanded money.

They took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled in a vehicle waiting outside, possibly a black Honda sedan.

The suspects were described as black, about 25 years old, and 5 feet 5 inches tall.

One was wearing a black letterman jacket with white sleeves, a white shirt, black pants, and gloves. The other suspect had a thin build and was wearing a black hoodie, black pants, and gloves. Both men had their faces covered. The victims did not require medical attention.

In other crime news, reports released by FCPD detailing crime statistics for 2016 show a 2 percent increase in crime countywide compared to 2015. The largest gains were in narcotics offenses.
