Fayetteville police are searching for a man wanted in two convenience store robberies this week. They've connected the two hold-ups by surveillance photos showing the man wearing the same shoes.

Police said the suspect robbed the Short Stop convenience store on Murchison Road Monday just after 1 p.m.  The suspect waited until all customers left the store then went to the counter and pulled out a gun. He was able to make off with an undisclosed amount of money.

The surveillance images from a robbery on Tuesday at the Kangaroo on Murphy Road show a man wearing the exact same white tennis shoes as Monday's photos.

The suspect is described as a black male about 5'5"- 5'7" tall between the ages of 30-35 and about 130-140 lbs.

Anyone with information on the robberies or the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
