RACINE, Wis. (AP) - Robbers have hit a Racine candy store for the second time this year.

The Racine Journal Times reports (https://bit.ly/29hQpzj ) three men robbed the Your Mini Sweet Shop on Wednesday. The clerk told police one of the men produced a handgun and demanded money. They made off with the clerk’s wallet and money clip, an unspecified amount of money from the register and store merchandise.

The store was robbed in January as well. Twenty-seven-year-old Nickendrick Jackson has been charged in that robbery. His jury trial is set for October.

Police couldn’t comment on whether the two robberies are connected. Officers found marijuana in a display case at the store in March during a tobacco sale compliance check.
