Police are trying to determine if two recent unsolved armed robberies of gas stations in P.E.I. are related.

RCMP Sgt. Andrew Blackadar says the investigation is continuing in relation to both robberies that took place five days apart.

The first crime was of a person robbing the North River Shell gas station on March 11. Police report an armed person entered the station at about 9:15 p.m. demanding cash from the lone clerk and fled the scene.

The second incident occurred Saturday at 8:50 p.m. where an armed individual made off with an undisclosed amount of cash from the New Annan Irving on Route 2 near Cavendish Farms.

Police are not prepared at this time to reveal what weapon was used in either robbery.

RCMP has been in the process of interviewing witnesses who were in the area at the time and are also looking through video surveillance.

Police continue to seek assistance from the public to help identify the suspect or suspects in both robberies.

Anyone with information regarding the crimes can contact the RCMP at 902-566-7112 or P.E.I. Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

    This statement in the story "and are also looking through video surveillance" just makes you wonder what the heck the RCMP are doing - if they have video evidence why would they not share it. Seems like a pretty serious crime and one that is most likely going to be repeated somewhere else soon.
