MOBERLY — Two armed robberies at a Subway and a Break Time on Morley Street Saturday night and early Sunday morning are suspected to be related, the Moberly Police Department said in two news releases.

The first robbery took place around 6:38 p.m. Saturday at the Subway on 400 N Morley St. A man carrying a gun entered the store and demanded cash from the store clerk. The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the release.

The clerk described the man as being of medium build — about 5'8" — with glasses.

The second robbery occurred at approximately 1 a.m. Sunday at the Break Time on 221 S. Morley St. A man of a similar description entered the store with a handgun and demanded an undisclosed amount of cash from the clerk on duty, the second release said.

The clerks at both locations were unharmed and, after reviewing security footage, detectives believe it to be the same suspect.

Anyone with information concerning the robberies is encouraged to call Moberly police at 660-263-0346 or the Randolph County Crime Line at 660-269-TIPS.

Supervising editor is Mary Ryan.
