Two thieves who struck in the Capitol Hill area have been captured by 7-Eleven surveillance cameras, videos police distributed today show.
One person of interest robbed a 7-Eleven in NoMa while armed with a knife, police said. The other individual, who burglarized a home in Near Northeast, was caught on camera inside one of the convenience stores, according to police.
The burglar hit a home on the 1000 block of 9th Street NE about 9:30 a.m. Monday. A video from a nearby 7-Eleven appears to show a bald man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a jacket buying something and then leaving.
The man who robbed the NoMa 7-Eleven struck about 9 a.m. March 22. Footage from the 7-Eleven at 1315 2nd St. NE shows a hooded man opening a bag and then filling it with packaged food.
Two 7-Eleven employees approach the thief, who flashes a knife at one of them. The workers walk away and the man continues to fill his bag with food. He then leaves.
