Greenville Police are investigating a series of armed robberies and say these attacks are their first priority.
Greenville Police say just before 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning, an armed suspect jumped from some bushes and held up the Burger King on the 3000 block of 10th Street, forcing the female employee inside and stealing more than $1,300. Another Burger King, this one on North Memorial Drive and Highway 33 was robbed Thursday night.
Late Sunday night, 2 people inside the lobby of the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel on Stantsonburg Road in Greenville were held up by 2 men. Police say a woman's purse was stolen and the clerk was forced to empty out the cash drawer. Sgt. Carlton Williams says they're looking to see if these cases are related.
