FORT MYERS, Fla. — The two women accused of robbing three Fort Myers-area 7-Eleven convenience stores plead not guilty to their charges Wednesday.
Erica Rayner and Tamara Thomas were arrested earlier this week after a traffic stop on the vehicle investigators believed was used in the crimes.
A search warrant uncovered not only the gun believed used, but also large amounts of scratch-off lottery tickets officials said were stolen in the July 27 robberies.
Two 7-Eleven stores were hit that morning; one on Palm Beach Blvd., the other on Convenience Way.
Officials believe the pair is responsible for a third robbery on Tamiami Trl. on July 8.
Both women have waived an arraignment hearing originally set for Aug. 29.
