Sheriff's deputies in Lewis County are investigating two early morning armed robberies that happened just days apart from each other.

The latest one happened just before 3:00 a.m. Thursday morning at the Jane Lew Truck Stop off of Hackers Creek Road. The man walked in with a black hand gun and left with the cash register drawer and an unknown amount of cash.

The suspect was a white man with a goatee and mustache. He was wearing a baseball hat, t-shirt, dark pants, and boots.

The earlier incident happened at 3:20 a.m. Tuesday morning, at the 7-11 pantry store, again off of Hackers Creek Road. The suspect in this case was a white man wearing a black baseball hat, gray hooded jacket, blue jeans, black gloves, and boots. He was armed with a black hand gun and left the store with an unknown amount of money.

No word on if these two incidents are related.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Lewis County Sheriff's Office at (304) 269-8251.
