Three Charlotte Convenience Stores Robbed Within Hours

From by by MICHELLE BOUDIN,March 14, 2012

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Charlotte police are trying to figure out if three robberies that took place at three different Circle K convenience stores within a matter of hours are connected.

Surveillance cameras showed a would-be robber at 9:30 Wednesday morning breezing in to the Circle K on South Boulevard.  The man is seen demanding money, even hopping the counter to get to the register.

The robber left with nothing after the clerk slammed the cash register closed.

But did he strike again?

Just an hour after the South boulevard store was hit, and just a couple of miles away on Freedom Drive, a robber held up another Circle K.

A third Circle K was robbed very early Wednesday morning on Monroe Road about 10 miles from the other two.

The manager there was reaching out to the other stores to see if there were similar descriptions, and so were police.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say they’re not sure at this point if there’s a connection, but it is something they’re investigating.
