It happened Tuesday at 12:25 a.m. inside the BP Gas Station located at 2200 West Allegheny Ave. in Tioga, police said.

Surveillance video released by police shows the trio entering with the fire extinguisher and spraying the employee inside the booth. Once it filled with powder, the suspects took items from the shelves from inside the station and fled in an unknown direction.
