CHULA VISTA, Calif. – Police are investigating whether two convenience stores in the South Bay may have been robbed overnight by the same masked gunman.

About 30 minutes later, an ARCO was robbed on Palm Avenue in Imperial Beach by a suspect matching the same description. He took cash from the register and an employee’s cell phone.
The robber ran away and may have fled the scene in a white Nissan Armada, police said.
No injuries were reported.
