Authorities are searching for at least four suspects involved in a string of convenience store robberies in Los Angeles and Orange counties overnight.

Some of the robberies were captured on surveillance video, including one that occurred Monday around 1:45 a.m. at a 7-Eleven store in Bellflower.

Four male suspects were seen running into the store in the 9400 block of Artesia Boulevard and taking items. Three of the suspects also jumped over the counter and one took cash from the register.

Investigators said the robbers fled in an orange SUV.

About an hour earlier, four male suspects wearing ski masks entered a 7-Eleven in the 15300 block of South Figueroa Street in Gardena.

Two suspects simulated having handguns and two others took cash from the register. The suspects fled in an orange Kia, according to authorities.

It was unclear if the suspects were actually armed during the robbery.

Around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, four suspects were reported to have entered and robbed a 7-Eleven in the 6800 block of East Slauson Avenue in Commerce in a similar fashion.

And in the Norwalk area, five suspects were believed to have taken the cash registers at a 7-Eleven on Alondra Boulevard around 9:15 p.m. before fleeing in a dark-colored SUV.

In Orange County, a 7-Eleven was targeted around 10:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of Orangethorpe Avenue.

Several stores in Anaheim were also robbed, including a 7-Eleven in the 700 block of North East Street around 10 p.m., a Shell station shortly after in the 3000 block of East La Palma Avenue and a Circle K in the 3800 block of East Riverdale Avenue at around 1 a.m. Monday.

Multiple suspects entered the stores, stole cash or cash registers and fled in a dark-colored SUV in each of the incidents.

Investigators believe the majority of incidents are related because license plate information matched the vehicle the suspects fled in at several of the locations.

Anyone with information was asked to call their local law enforcement agency.
