Two men robbed All About Eyes on Tuesday evening in Collinsville, according to police.

The armed robbery happened around 7 p.m., Collinsville Major Brett Boerm said. Two men entered the store and displayed a weapon.

They fled with an undisclosed amount of cash along with a “significant” amount of high-end eye glass frames, Boerm said.

“We believe that the suspect vehicle is a dark-colored sedan,” Boerm said.

There is surveillance video of the robbery and police were reviewing it Wednesday, according to Boerm.

All About Eyes is located at 1172 Collinsville Crossing Blvd.
