Chico police are looking for three men involved in two armed robberies that occurred just one mile from each other.

The first robbery occurred late Thursday at the Jackpot Food Mart on W. 6th Street. Police say a white or Hispanic man in his mid-twenties walked into the store around 10:30 p.m., brandished a gun and made off with money from the register.

The second robbery happened at 5:40 a.m. Friday at the Chevron gas station on Nord Avenue. Two armed men walked into the store and held the clerks at gunpoint.

The two men fled southbound on Nord Avenue and are described only as wearing dark clothing.

At this time it is unknown if there is any connection between the two incidents, but anyone with information on either robbery is asked to call the Chico Police Department at 530-897-4900.
