Greenville police said the Kangaroo on Greenville Blvd. and 14th St. was robbed at gunpoint at 12:30 a.m. The Kangaroo on Portertown Rd. and Eastern Pines was also robbed at gunpoint earlier in the night. That case is being handled by the Pitt County Sheriff's Office.
Greenville police said there was no hard evidence at this time the robberies were related, though it would be something detectives investigate today.
The robberies overnight bring the number of such crimes in the Greenville area to four in the past week. The Kangaroo at 2600 Charles Blvd. was robbed at gunpoint Monday night. The Wilco Hess at 715 S. Memorial Drive was robbed Friday night.
