Police are investigating whether a spray painted gold Chevrolet Cavalier with license plate DKG363 is connected with this robbery and one that occurred Tuesday night on Ingersoll Avenue.
In another of a string of convenience store robberies, police say a small black handgun was displayed during the robbery of an Ingersoll Avenue business Monday night.
