Four Lubbock Convenience Stores Robbed Saturday Morning

Lubbock Police are investigating four convenience store robberies from over the weekend.

Officers were first called to the Town and Country at 82nd and I-27 around 3:25 Saturday morning. The suspect told the clerk he had a gun, but never showed one. The bandit was described as a Hispanic man standing about 5-feet, 2-inches tall.

Nearly three hours later, police responded to a theft at the Town and Country at 34th and Avenue Q. The clerk told officers the suspect was Hispanic and claimed to have a gun.

Just before 8 a.m. Saturday, a clerk at the 7-11 at 8th and Avenue Q alerted police after a suspect attempted to rob the store. The clerk told officers the man asked for a pack of cigarettes, then left in search of his money. He returned to the store and demanded money, while claiming to have a gun. He then fled without anything when the clerk told him police were alerted.

Less than 15 minutes later, a suspect held up the 7-11 at 2608 Avenue Q. This time, the bandit claimed to have a knife beneath his shirt. He left the store with about $12 in cash. Police are investigating to see if these robberies are connected.
