Police in Shelby are looking for a suspect or suspects in connection with a pair of convenience store armed robberies before daybreak Sunday.

Neither store clerk was injured during the robberies, police said.

The first case was reported shortly after 5 a.m. at the Kangaroo Express in the 3600 block of West Dixon Boulevard. A man wearing a hat and a bandanna over his mouth entered the store and demanded money at gunpoint.

The suspect then ran off with the money.

The second robbery was reported about 5:30 a.m. at the Fast Stop Market, in the 1020 block of East Dixon Boulevard. That is about 6 miles from the first robbery.

A man who fit the description of the suspect in the first robbery entered the store, pulled a handgun and demanded money. The suspect ran off with the money once again.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Shelby police at 704-484-7150 or 704-484-6845.
