Two sought in Durham store robberies

Posted November 3, 2010

— Durham police say they are trying to identify two men who robbed a Kangaroo Express convenience store early Sunday.

Two armed men with bandanas over their faces entered the store around 4:45 a.m. and demanded money from the clerk, police said.

One suspect was wearing a black jacket, black shoes, a black bandana over his face, a black-and-white striped hoodie with a white T-shirt underneath and gray pants.

The second suspect wore a white hoodie with multi-colored stripes, long red gym pants with white stripes down each leg, red shoes and a red bandana over his face.

Police believe the robbery could be connected to three other robberies at convenience stores in the same area within a four-day period.

Exxon at 3321 N.C. Highway 55 was robbed at 3:05 a.m. on Oct. 30 and Nov. 2. On Nov. 1, at 3:05 a.m., a Kangaroo Express at 2503 N.C. 55 was robbed.

In each case, the robber pointed a gun at the clerk and wore dark clothing and a bandana over his face, police said.

Police ask that anyone with information about any of the cases to call investigators at 919-560-4415 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.

Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.

    we don't need a pic of the perps, we all know what they look like. Probably driving a 85 Caprice Classic, jacked up, painted Lime Green with 22's. Bet you couldn't pronounce one of their first names......... typical, though it probably contains the words Jello or D'Monte.

    Maybe they should change their attire into ski vest, with the hoody attached, skinny jeans, laceless sneakers. Maybe the picture of this criminal fits the crime. I think it does, please read.

    Actually I just heard on the radio that these two were from Cary. Renting, I can only assume.

    djfann882002, the other half is in Wake Co., Raleigh, so I guess they need to check both cities or do you only claim elite people of North Raleigh, Inner Beltline area?

    To djfann882002, Right, I see bandana covered faces all the time in Durham. Please, I think you are running the "Durham" thing into the ground. Give it a rest.
