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.
