FRANKLIN COUNTY -- Robbers are targeting Speedway convenience stores on Franklin County's west side.

Two locations were robbed within days of each other, by two separate criminals.

A Speedway at 4555 W. Broad St. was robbed October 31, by a man claiming to have a gun. 

The suspect, is described as a white male, 5'9" to 6'00", tall, thin build, wearing a black hoodie, dark pants, and white tennis shoes, and a white hat underneath the hoodie.

The same Speedway was held up a few days later by a robber pointing a screwdriver at a clerk. 

He was wearing a Grey hoodie, and a black mask over his face. 

The suspect ordered the clerk to get down on the floor before fleeing with cash.

Franklin County Sheriff detectives believe the same man held up a Speedway at 4797 W. Broad St early Halloween morning.

This time, the screwdriver carrying suspect, was wearing a white hat and black jacket.

Both suspects fled on foot.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Franklin County Sheriff's office at 614-525-3551.
