Chicago police detectives released surveillance video and images of two men who have been robbing convenience stores on the Northwest Side this month.

The video footage shows one robber ripping equipment from behind the counter of a 7-Eleven. He proceeds to stuff packs of cigarettes into his pockets and backpack and appears to access bank deposit bags.

His accomplice remained near the store’s entrance during the heist, apparently serving as the lookout.

CPD said the pair robbed stores in the 3500 block of North Pulaski at 5:24 p.m. on February 13; the 3500 block of North Cicero at 11:35 p.m. on February 15; and the 6500 block of West Belmont at 12:23 a.m. on February 16.

One man is Hispanic, 5’5″ to 5’7″ tall, and dressed entirely in black, police said. The other man is Black, 5’10” to 6 feet tall, and slim. He wears a black jacket, a black hoodie, and purple pants, according to CPD.
