Snow Hill police Chief John Ray said three men wearing dark clothes and masks and carrying handguns also robbed a Bojangles restaurant at 1035 Kingold Blvd. about 9:15 p.m.

Neither the Goldsboro Police Department nor the Snow Hill Police Department would say whether they believed the robberies are connected.

The amount of money in each robbery was not disclosed and further descriptions of the robbers also were not made available.
