BURLINGTON (CBS) – Two more Dunkin’ Donuts stores were robbed Monday night, but police aren’t saying yet if the incidents are connected to a long string of thefts.

The first robbery happened around 8 p.m. at the Dunkin’ Donuts on Winn Street in Burlington. Police say a man in a black hooded jacket, a ski mask, blue jeans, black sneakers and goggles showed a gun, grabbed money from the register and ran off.

About twenty minutes later in Bedford, police say a man fitting a similar description climbed through the drive-thru window of the Dunkin’ Donuts on Great Road and demanded money from two employees.

This makes more than 20 Dunkin’ stores robbed since March in 14 different towns in the Boston area.

In each case, a store has been robbed between 8 and 11:30 p.m., the suspect has a gun or a knife, demands money, takes it and runs away.

Investigators aren’t saying yet whether Monday’s robberies are related to the other incidents.

“We can’t definitively tell you that they’re all connected, but since it’s been a common store that’s being robbed, then we will look at all of that,” Burlington Police Capt. Thomas Duffy told reporters Tuesday.

There was also an armed robbery Monday night at a Hess gas station on Prospect Street in Waltham.

The same description of the suspect was given in each of the three robberies Monday.
