The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs your help to identify and find the suspects who police believe committed two robberies in southern Chesterfield County. In each robbery, black males entered the store and immediately approached the clerk, displayed firearms and robbed the store of cash.

The first robbery occurred at Dyson’s Store on River Road on Friday, Sept. 16, at about 7:50 p.m. Also stolen during the Dyson’s Store robbery was a small .25-caliber semiautomatic handgun. The second robbery occurred at Market Place on Harrowgate Road on Saturday, Sept. 17, at about 10:40 p.m.
