Police say the Shell gas station in St. James on Middle Country Road was robbed in a similar manner two hours later. Najrul Mohammed, who works at the Shell station, told News 12 that three men armed with a gun suddenly rushed the cashier.

Two other robberies occurred on Route 112 in Medford over the weekend.

Police have clear surveillance video from all four locations. However, they do not offer many clues since the suspects are completely covered up.

Authorities are reviewing the footage and other evidence to determine if the robberies are connected.
