CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – Two men are accused of a committing rash of robberies at several dollar stores and pharmacies in Cleveland and Euclid.

According to prosecutors, the men committed six robberies in 12 days.

Now, a grand jury has returned an indictment charging Xhyair Bennett, 20, and Errol Bankston, 18, for the crimes.

Here is how the robberies played out:

Officials say Bennett and Bankston entered a Family Dollar near Superior Avenue and East 74th Street in Cleveland. They allegedly approached the store clerk at the register with a $10 bill. When the clerk opened the register, they pointed a gun and said, “Give me everything you got.” The two then allegedly grabbed all the money in the register and ran from the scene.

Later that day, the two are also accused of entering a Dollar General near Superior Avenue and East 51st Street in Cleveland. Officials say, the men walked around the store for about 20 minutes and attempted to distract the other employees from the register. Then, they approached the store clerk at the register with a gun and demanded they open the register. The pair then allegedly grabbed all the money in the register and, again, took off from the scene.
