The Wake County Sheriff's Office is trying to find the people responsible for ramming an SUV into several convenience stores overnight.

The first incident happened at On the Way Gas and Grocery on Old Milburnie Road just before 4 a.m.

Then, just after 5 a.m., there was another smash-and-grab at Handy Hugo on Buffaloe Road.

Shortly after that, deputies responded to a similar call at BJ's Grocery Store on Rolesville Road.

Investigators are looking for two men who they believe used a full-size SUV to smash into the front doors of the convenience stores, with the intent to steal items inside.

A surveillance camera captured one of the attempts and showed a 2008 Grey Chevy Suburban that was previously stolen from a charter school in Raleigh. The license plate is FJD2761.

On Wednesday afternoon, the sheriff's office said it found the SUV abandoned near Louisburg and N. New Hope roads. Investigators are processing it for evidence.

The suspects have not been found.

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to contact the Wake County Sheriff's Office at (919) 856-6911.
