Police released video on Tuesday of the Friday afternoon robbery at the Dunkin' Donuts on Edgewater Drive where a gunman went into the store and took a Dunkin Donuts bag full of cash.

The robbery prompted the lockdown of two nearby schools.

On Tuesday, police connected the Dunkin' Donuts robbery to one at the CVS on Edgewater Drive on April 20 where a man walked into the business armed with a handgun and made all occupants of the store get on the floor.

In both cases, the robber takes the victims' cellphones so they can't call 911 and leaves them outside, police said.

Anyone with information about the robberies can call Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.
