There was a series of armed robberies in Michiana Thursday night and Friday morning.

Elkhart Police were sent to the 7-11 store on South Nappanee St. shortly before midnight. It was reported that five male suspects, two of them armed, had robbed an undermined amount of cash from the store. A dark colored vehicle was seen in the area shortly after the robbery.

Friday morning between 1 and 1:30 a.m. a pair of stores were hit in St. Joseph County. The Family Express on Union Street in Mishawaka and the Fresh Way on South Miami Street in South Bend were robbed roughly half an hour apart from each other. The Fresh Way had also been robbed earlier that night. In the Family Express robbery the suspects left on foot, but after the robbery at the Fresh Way they fled in a dark-colored Ford Explorer. There were no injuries reported at either location and the suspects are all described as black males in their late teens to early 20s.

Detectives are investigating other robberies that are potentially connected.
