WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News Staff

JACKSON, Tenn.-Jackson police hunt for suspects in two different armed robberies that happened within minutes of each other.

It all started around 8:45 p.m. when a worker at the Laquinta Inn on North Highland called 911 and said she saw a man getting robbed in the parking lot and heard gun shots.

A police officer was there in seconds and chased a car, north about three miles until it crashed near Rolling Acres Trailer Park.
Officers said the one man inside got out and ran.

Minutes later in the trailer park, police said a second armed robbery happened. This time, two men, one black, the other white robbed a man inside his home on Bess Lane at gunpoint, taking cash and his cell phone. The victim told police he could not get a look at the get away driver. No arrests have been made.

If you saw anything that could help officers find the men reponsible for either of these crimes, call Jackson Police at (731) 425-8400 or Crimestoppers at (731) 424-TIPS.
