Temple Convenience Store Robbed Twice in Two Days
A Texaco convenience store in Temple was the victim of two robberies in as many days.
Police responded to a robbery report at the CEFCO store at 3805 South 31st Street Sunday around 12:34 am. When they arrived, an employee said a man entered the store, displayed a handgun and demanded money. The suspect fled south from the crime scene with an undisclosed amount of cash. Officers searched the area but were unable to locate him.
Officers responded to the same store Monday after another reported robbery. Once again, a man reportedly entered the store, displayed a gun and demanded cash before fleeing south.
Police say it is unclear if the two robberies are related.

The suspect in the second robbery is described as a black male wearing a mask, a grey button down shirt, black pants, and black shoes.
