    Two armed robberies hit two restaurants in quick succession Friday night in Pulaski County and the sheriff's office believes the heists were related.

    No one was injured in either robbery.

    The first stickup occurred about 9:08 p.m. at Troy's restaurant in the Fairlawn section of the county, Sheriff Jim Davis said. The second followed just five minutes later at King Buffet.

    Davis said the man who robbed Troy's was described as white, about 5 feet 9 inches or 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing between 180 and 200 pounds and wearing tan pants and a gray hooded sweatshirt.

    He said the man wore some kind of facial covering and appeared to wield a semi-automatic pistol.

    "The suspect demanded cash and fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash," Davis said.

    "Less than five minutes later, a second robbery call came in," he said.

    A white man, described as about 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 160 pounds, entered King Buffet, demanded cash and fled on foot. Davis said the suspect was wearing a camouflage-style jacket or hooded garment, jeans and a facial covering. He brandished a similar weapon, Davis said.

    The sheriff said authorities are not disclosing the amount of cash estimated to have been taken.

    Davis said that within minutes of the second robbery, a small, dark-colored, two-door car was seen leaving the area at high speed.

    "We feel both robberies were connected with the same group of people," he said. "We're currently checking all the security cameras in the area and have been working through the day, interviewing people."

    He said the Radford Police Department provided support and that Christiansburg police brought a tracking dog to the scene. The dog followed a scent but lost it in a parking lot.

    Additional patrols are under way in the area, he said Saturday.

    "Investigation is continuing," Davis said.

    He encouraged anyone who might have information about the robberies to call 980-7810.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
