Police on Wednesday asked for help in identifying three men suspected of robbing three businesses Tuesday evening.
The robberies occurred in a short period of time between 8:40 and 9:05 p.m. in south Kansas City.
The first robbery happened at the Phillips 66 at 10245 State Line Road.
A man entered the store and showed a clerk a handgun and demanded money.
The second robbery occurred at the Dollar General store at 10524 Grand View Road.
Two men entered the business to make a purchase. As the clerk opened the register, one of the men pulled out a handgun and the second man grabbed money from the register.
The third robbery took place at the 7-Eleven at 11107 Grandview Road.
During this robbery, one of the men from the Phillips 66 robbery entered the store and made a purchase. After two other men entered, one displayed a handgun. They robbed the store while the first man held the door open.
Police released photographs of the alleged robbers in the hopes that someone could identify them.
One photo shows a man with an outstretched arm holding what appears to be a handgun.
Police are also looking for a black Dodge pickup with a silver toolbox that is possibly related to the robberies.
Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to contact the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (474-8477.)
