It started at the Turbo Food Mart on Plantation Road around 12-30 Saturday morning.

Around 5-30 A-M two men- -wearing the same ski masks- -one orange, the other yellow- -went into the Uni-Mart on South Jefferson.
One of the robbers kept yelling at the one with the gun, telling him to kill the clerk because he was taking too long to hand over the money.
Fifteen minutes later they were at the 7-11 on Grandin Road, yelling obscenities, demanding cash, but got very little from that store.
