On March 13, both suspects robbed the Family Dollar in the 1700 block of Williamsburg Road, about six miles away from the first Family Dollar that was robbed.
The FBI said the suspects then tried to rob the Dollar General on North Avenue on March 27, but were unsuccessful. That store is right up the road from the first Family Dollar.
On April 16, the second suspect robbed the Carolina Express on Carolina Avenue. That same suspect robbed the same Family Dollar on East Brookland Park on April 30 that the first suspect robbed twice before.
