— Fayetteville police released new surveillance images early Friday of two suspects who are wanted in a string of armed robberies.

According to investigators, the suspects robbed the Kangaroo Express at 1764 Ireland Drive at about 1:25 a.m.

One of the suspects displayed a black semi-automatic weapon in the robbery, and the suspects forced the store clerk and a customer into the store, where they stole the cash register drawer.

The suspect holding the weapon was described as 6 feet tall and 200 to 220 pounds. He was wearing a black North Face jacket and grey pants. The second suspect is shorter, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and a white bandanna, which was covering his face.

The two men arrived at the convenience store in a blue 2004 Saturn Ion, a vehicle police say they stole Thursday when they robbed a pizza delivery driver on Ainsley Street.

The car has North Carolina license tag DJK-1808 and a Baltimore, Md., firefighter's emblem above the third brake light. Police say the men put the Kangaroo cash register in the pizza delivery bag taken during the car robbery.

Investigators said the two men are also suspected in an attempted robbery reported at about 12:30 a.m. Friday at a Kangaroo Express in the 5700 block of Ramsey Street. The store clerk locked the doors of the store, keeping the suspects out, police said.

"We were told that clerk apparently saw the suspects coming and locked the door and after talking to them and hearing about the other robbery, it sounded like the same suspects involved in the attempted robbery and the Kangaroo robbery on Ireland Drive," said Fayetteville Police Lt. David McLaurin.

Police said they also believe the pair is responsible for the robbery of another pizza delivery man that occurred Tuesday on Rexdale Street.

Anyone with information on the robberies or the whereabouts of the suspects should call 911 or Fayetteville Crime Stoppers at 910-483-8477. The suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.
