Police are searching for a man and woman suspected of robbing more than a dozen places in the Memphis area.

The two were caught on surveillance footage robbing a Family Dollar.

While the woman waited for her change, the man came up with a gun, robbed the cashier, and the two took off.

“I don't know what to think of it; I just thought it was crazy,” shopper Tony Jackson said.

Some Memphians are comparing the two to an infamous bandit couple.

“A modern day Bonnie and Clyde, but they getting change,” Tangie Riles said.

In addition to two Family Dollar stores, police said the couple is responsible for robbing a Lenny’s Sub Shop, two Dollar General stores, a Subway, and a Church’s Chicken.

“They just don't have much security,” Riles said.

The couple may be targeting the stores with low security that are easy to scope out.

“Know they're movements, because they been getting away with it,” Jackson said.

If you have any information that could lead to the arrest of the two, contact Memphis police at 901-545-COPS.
