A rash of robberies in Lubbock in the past 24 hours has police looking for three different bandits.
About 9:20 Monday morning someone robbed the 7-Eleven in the 800 block of Avenue Q. Police say the man used an unknown weapon to force the clerk to lie down in a back room.

A short time later, someone robbed a clerk at the Taco Bell in the 1400 block of 19th Street. According to police reports, the clerk was taking two money bags to the bank.

At the time of the crime he was wearing a blue down jacket with a hood.
The third robbery happened at an Idalou Drive around 9:15 Monday night. Police say the man went up to the window at Bill's Drive-In, told the clerk he had a gun and demanded money.
