Federal and local authorities are looking for the suspects who they say are responsible for at least five armed robberies in the suburbs of Philly.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Two more 7-Eleven stores were robbed early Tuesday morning, and investigators are now trying to determine if they are related to a string of others in the area.

Officers responded to a robbery at the store on Fayette Street in Conshohocken, Montgomery County at about 1:30 a.m.

Investigators said two men armed with handguns demanded money from an employee.

The suspects ran from the scene with the money in a bag the suspect was seen carrying.

About 30 minutes later, a 7-Eleven in the 5600 block of Ridge Avenue in Philadelphia's Roxborough neighborhood was robbed at gunpoint.

Police tell Action News that two suspects got away with cash from the register.

"I go there all the time, they're great people. They're always saying hello...It's just one of those unfortunate things. You're putting people's lives in danger, you're putting people's families in danger," said Joe Clisham of Roxborough.

No injuries were reported in either of the robberies on Tuesday.

These robberies came one day after the FBI put out an alert about five armed robberies at 7-Eleven stores in the Philadelphia suburbs.

The crimes happened in Montgomery, Bucks and Delaware counties.

Upper Southampton Township police released video of a masked man and accomplice who targeted a 7-Eleven convenience store right across the street from their police station.

It happened on Street Road just before 1 a.m. Sunday.

"The phone lines were not working at the time. I don't know if there was a problem, but we did receive a panic alarm through our radio room," said Chief Dominic Varacallo with Upper Southampton police.

Customers were left shocked after learning about the bold move.

"Especially across from the police station, you would think it would be a safer spot," said Kaylee Lagler.

Police and the FBI are now investigating the following robberies:

  • July 22, 2023 - 7-Eleven; 2370 Dutton Mill Road, Aston Township (Delaware County)

  • July 22, 2023 - 7-Eleven; 143 West Eagle Road, Haverford Township (Delaware County)

  • July 27, 2023 - 7-Eleven; 1307 Chester Pike, Sharon Hill (Delaware County)

  • July 30, 2023 - 7-Eleven; 791 Horsham Road, Montgomery Township (Montgomery County)

  • July 30, 2023 - 7-Eleven; 932 Street Road, Upper Southampton Township (Bucks County)

All of the robberies have taken place between midnight and 2 a.m.

Police say employees have been threatened, intimidated and physically assaulted.

In the latest case, police say the suspects left a major clue.

"We were able to recover some of the gloves worn during the actual robbery. We are hoping to use that as evidence and get some DNA," said Chief Varacallo.

Anyone with information on these robberies or the suspects is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or go to
