Columbia Police Say String of Robberies Related
COLUMBIA - Police said Wednesday they believe the same two men committed three robberies -- and one attempted robbery -- in Columbia since July 22.
The latest hit was Check N' Go off Grindstone Parkway on Monday just after 3 p.m. Robbers also struck Taco Bell on Smiley Lane, Break Time off Stadium Boulevard near I-70, and Jimmy John's off Providence on Corporate Lake Drive.
The pair enters the businesses with masks, draw a handgun, demand money, and flee on foot.
"There's always the possibility that they will do it again," said Latisha Stroer, an office with the Columbia Police Department.
