MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Late Saturday night and into Sunday morning, two 7-Eleven's were robbed.
The first one, at the corner of Neely and Midland Drive, around 11:28 p.m., and the second further south on Midland Drive, not even an hour later, at 12:15 a.m.
Midland Police said the suspects are described as white or Hispanic men, with a thin to average build.
The police say there's no proof that weapons were used, though witnesses say differently.
"From reports that we got, it seems to be suggested, that they maybe suggested that they were armed," said Sara Bustilloz with the City of Midland. "But from what we know right now there was never any actual weapon displayed."
The city of Midland said they have actually seen quite an uptick in similar crimes committed, and they have a hunch as to why.
"Every year we see a little bit of a bump in robberies around this time of year just because Christmas is coming,' said Bustilloz. "Unfortunately, especially with the down cycle that we're in, as people start to think about thanksgiving coming up, Christmas coming up, the holiday season, we start to see people get a little more desperate and try to find easy ways to get cash in their pockets. "
