FORT MYERS, Fla. — Two women are sought by investigators after a pair of early-morning convenience store robberies in Fort Myers.

Deputies were called to at a store off Palm Beach Blvd., as well as another location off Convenience Way, some 35 minutes away near Summerlin Rd.

Officials are looking for two women who were dressed in all-black clothing who allegedly held up the Convenience Way store around 4 a.m., armed with a handgun, before doing the same at the Palm Beach Blvd. location about 45 minutes later.

In both instances, investigators say the suspects got away with cash and lottery tickets. They possibly made their getaway in a dark grey sedan.

Crime Stoppers says one of the suspects may be involved in another robbery of a Tamiami Trl. 7-Eleven on July 8.

Anyone with information about either crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
