Alice Police are investigating a pair of armed robberies that happened within 45 minutes of each other on Tuesday night.

The first happening around 9:30PM at the LC Drive Thru along N. Johnson. Police say they were called to a investigate after a man walked up to the store and demanded money at knife point. The suspect got away with an undermined amount of money and took off on foot. The suspect is described as a white man with a medium build and a black T-shirt. The suspect has several tattoos on his arms and was also wearing a baseball cap. LC Drive Thru provided Alice Police with a photograph from their surveillance system.

Around 10:15PM another robbery was reported at Primos store just down the road on N. Johnson. The suspect in this robbery brandished a firearm and demanded cash. There is a very vague description of the suspect, all police would say was that he was wearing a mask and jacket.

Police say they believe both robberies are related due to the location and timing of the robberies. If you have any information, you are asked to call Crime Stoppers of South Texas at 361-664-STOP (7867).
