A string of robberies in Tyler over the last two days, and police believe they may be related.
The robberies took place at three separate convenience stores. The first happened Saturday at the "In & Out Stop" on Gentry Parkway. Then, Sunday afternoon, the "Midway Food mart" on Houston and Broadway was robbed. And just 3o minutes later the "Food Fast" at Loop 323 and Kinsey was also robbed.
Police closed down the store to interview workers and collect evidence. They say in each instance, a black male came into the store and demanded money. He got away from all three robberies with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No one was injured in any of the robberies. If you have any information you are asked to call Tyler Police at 903-531-1000.
