— Fayetteville police have released surveillance video of two men robbing a fast-food restaurant who they think might be responsible for as many as five other robberies in the area within the past month.

In each case, the robbers walk into the restaurant not wearing masks but put them on in the bathroom. They come out of the bathroom armed with guns, rob the business and then flee in a dark-colored sedan driven by a third person.

Each suspect is described as being about 5 feet 7 inches tall to 5 feet 10 inches tall with a slim build. One has a gold tooth.

Police say that no one has been hurt in the robberies but that they are concerned that it's just a matter of time before the pair strikes again.

The most recent robbery happened on June 1 at a Hardee's on Reilly Road in Fayetteville.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call detectives with the Fayetteville Police Department at 910-433-1856 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS (8477).

    "see, gun laws only keep them out of the hands of people who could have stopped these bad guys in their tracks.

    More likely shot themselves or innocent bystanders.

    If a kid doesn't have a job or is not enrolled in school at age 18, FORCE them into job corps! They need something to do other than this.

    yoowoo - see, gun laws only keep them out of the hands of people who could have stopped these bad guys in their tracks.

    From my understanding, your comment is suggesting that you want the fast-food restaurant workers to start to carry? That is what gun laws is blocking? You seriously want these people to carry where there are a number of children who go in and out of these places? I won't tell you which side i'm on regarding gun laws, but that was an illogical comment you made. tsk tsk
