The investigation revealed that in each case, the two male suspects target the stores shortly after they open their doors.  The suspects pose as customers then one pulls out a gun and announces a robbery.  The suspects tie up the employees and steal cash.   In one of these robberies, a getaway car was spotted.  That vehicle is described as a white SUV, possible with temporary Maryland tags.  The driver is described as a black female, wearing a white shower cap and white tank top.
