ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Surveillance footage appears to link two men to a pair of armed robberies of Metro-East convenience stores, earlier this week.

Granite City police posted store cam video from the 7-11 on their Facebook page Wednesday. It's video taken around two in the morning Tuesday as two men jump the counter and take money from a cash register, frightening shoppers with their guns.

The Belleville News Democrat obtained a still photo from a security camera at the Circle K on Old Saint Louis Road near Belleville.

It shows what appear to be the same men holding up that business, just two hours after the Granite City heist.

Contact the St. Clair County Sheriff's Department or Granite City police if you have any tips.
