Police are searching for two armed suspects who stole $60,000 from a Whole Foods in Manhattan on Sunday.

NBC reports employees at the Bowery Whole Foods on East Houston Street were robbed while transporting the store's money in an elevator around 10 p.m..

One suspect pointed a gun at the employees and told them to get to the ground. The other suspect tied an employee's hands behind his back.

A source told The New York Post the gunpoint robbery may have been an inside job.

“They ran from the receiving door which no one outside the store knows about,” a worker said. “They know parts of the store that we only know.”

The pair were seen fleeing on Chrystie Street.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-tips (8477).
