He entered at the store at 3 p.m. and proceeded to steal several items while an employee was distracted, and fled the store on a bicycle.

The second suspect allegedly stole items from the 7-Eleven on Route 1 as well as the Quick Chek on Route 27.

In both cases, the suspect asked the clerk for cartons of cigarettes, according to police.
