New York State Police and the Niagara County Sheriff's Office put out pleas to the public for assistance in catching the perpetrators of two armed gas station robberies.

NCSO - Surveillance capture of
suspect from Monday night robbery
at Wheatfield 7-Eleven.
On Tuesday, NCSO released a photo and call for help concerning an armed robbery that occurred Monday at the 7-Eleven store located at Plaza and Sawyer drives in the Town of Wheatfield. The robbery occurred at approximately 11:49 p.m.

The suspect is described as a white male 20-30 years old. He is believed to be about 5-feet 11-inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a brown Carhartt type jacket with a black knit hat. If anyone has any information or was in the store around that time frame the Sheriff's Office asks that you contact Investigator John Wick at 438-3342 or 438-3327.

This morning, NYSP issued an alert concerning a robbery-by-knifepoint at Gail's Tobacco & Gas Outlet on Upper Mountain Road in the Town of Lewiston around 9 p.m. Tuesday.

According to State Police, the suspect is described as being a white male, approximately 6-feet 2-inches tall, and weighing around 170 - 180 pounds. The suspect wore a black hooded sweatshirt, grey pants, and used a scarf to cover his face. The male fled the store on foot after stealing cash taken from the store's register. Anyone with information on that crime is asked to call the New York State Police at 434-1245 or 434-5589.

There were a string of armed robberies between Christmas and the end of January but they stopped following the arrest of two men in Cheektowaga on Jan. 30.

Feb. 23 saw three armed robberies at knifepoint within an 8-hour period. A suspect was charged for one of those robberies two days later.

There has been no connection made between the two robberies this week, nor has there been any connection announced between either of those robberies and any of the prior ones.
