BRISTOL — Police were investigating a string of robberies Monday that occurred at two different Bristol convenience stores.

According to the Bristol Tennessee Police Department, a man entered the Scotchman gas station at 1290 Volunteer Parkway around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, brandished a gun and demanded the clerk give him cash from the register.

The robber then left the store and reportedly traveled a half-mile down the road to the Shell Roadrunner gas station at 1716 Volunteer Parkway just before midnight where he again robbed the store.

Police said video from both locations shows the robber to the same person.

The man was described as a white male, wearing a blue hoodie, Detroit Tigers baseball cap, sunglasses and dark pants and shirt.

Police believe the robber had a vehicle parked nearby the locations.

Anyone with information regarding the robberies is asked to call Det. Justin Branson at 989-5568 or the TIPS line at 764-TIPS. Tips can also be emailed at tips@bristoltn.org.
