Back-to-Back Convenience Store Robberies Appear To Be Related
Kennewick police report Wednesday evening a pair of convenience store knock offs that are eerily similar.
First, a man described as a medium built Hispanic entered the Jet Mart Store at 1001 North Volland, waving a knife and demanding money. The clerk did so, and the man fled the store. Then a short time later, a suspect matching the same description entered the Circle K located at 1002 South Washington.
This suspect also held the clerk at knife point, and got away with an undisclosed amount of money. Anyone with any information can anonymously report it by calling (509)-628-0333.
The folks at the Jet Mart Conoco, which is NOT that far from our home, have had a tough time lately. Twice in the last few weeks, drunken or impaired drivers have rammed vehicles through the walls of their store, in two different spots. They're still trying to get them fixed. Here's one view of the damage at Jet Mart.
