Charlotte-Mecklenburg and Matthews Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying two suspects involved in the armed robbery of two Kangaroo Express locations and a CVS Pharmacy in Matthews.

At about 3:35 a.m. on March 23, two white male suspects entered the Kangaroo Express located at 935 Charlottetowne Avenue in the Providence Division and robbed the business at gunpoint.

The first suspect was described as between 5-foot-6-inches and 5-foot-9-inches and between the ages of 20 and 30 years old. He was described as having a slim build, and was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, black sneakers, and a black ski mask.

The second suspect was between 5-foot-5-inches and 5-foot-6-inches, medium build and in his late 20s to early 30s. He was wearing a brown ski mask and brown jacket.

Then at about 11:18 p.m. on March 26, a white male robbed the Kangaroo Express at 8008 Harris Station in the University Division at gunpoint. The white male suspect described is potentially the suspect involved in the Providence Division Kangaroo Express robbery on March 23.

He was described as being between 5-foot-6-inchees and 5-foot-9-inches and between the ages of 20 and 30. He also had a slim build and was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, black sneakers and a black ski mask.
