The Niagara Falls Police Department and the City of Tonawanda Police Department are both putting their heads together trying to figure out who’s responsible for robberies at two different 7-Eleven stores Thursday morning.
The first one happened just before 3 a.m. at the 7-Eleven on Niagara Street, in the city of Tonawanda.
Tonawanda Police say two black men, wearing hoodies, one with the number 76 on it, walked into the store with a black handgun. They got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes.
Then about a half hour later, at around 3:30 a.m., two men fitting the same description robbed a 7-Eleven on Niagara Falls Boulevard in the Falls. In the Falls, they got away with 187 packs of Newport Cigarettes and 4 Black & Mild cigars.
Both suspects were wearing Covid face masks.
“The masks really conceal a big part of their face, especially when their hoodies are pulled down real narrow over their face, it’s tough to get a good description of their face, when they’re committing the crime,” said Captain Fredric Foels City of Tonawanda Police Department. “Covid masks are a bit of a hindrance for identification purposes.”
The suspects are two black males. One was 5’8 – wearing a black hoodie, black pants. And the other was also a black male, he was 5’5 – wearing a grey hoodie with the number 76 on it, and grey shorts.
