Police: 2 face federal charges in 7-Eleven robbery spree

Two men accused in six 7-Eleven robberies on Long Island were arrested early Thursday morning after a high-speed police chase, officials say.



According to court documents, Tyquan Dudley, 18, of Central Islip, and Terrence Hunt, 22, robbed two 7-Eleven stores Thursday. Another man who has not yet been apprehended is also being sought in connection with the robberies.



Federal agents say Dudley and Hunt were arrested after crashing their car during a chase. Inside the vehicle, authorities say they found cash, cigarettes and a purse.



In each of the robberies, police say the three men would go to the stores wearing bandanas and masks while one would act as a look out. Each time, the three allegedly got away with hundreds to thousands of dollars.



After their arrest, police say Hunt admitted he was involved in all six robberies and Dudley confessed to being the lookout in the last two.



Dudley's family was in federal court for his initial appearance Friday but did not want to speak with News 12.



Both Dudley and Hunt are facing federal charges and are being held without bail.



Authorities are urging anyone with information about the third suspect to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
