Investigators released a surveillance photo showing one of the suspects inside the chain store.

The Mobile Police Department says they’re dealing with similar crimes at similar stores.
So far in 2016, more than 20 Dollar General and Family Dollar stores have been robbed throughout Mobile and Prichard.
Law enforcement officers say the stores are easy targets because there’s no security guard. Family Dollar did not immediately return our request for comment.
