HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- The FBI was called to help Henrico Police investigate an overnight robbery at the 7-Eleven at 3600 Mechanicsville Turnpike, near East Laburnum Avenue and Byron Street.

The store owner told CBS 6, the store has been robbed three times in three years.

"The FBI is involved because of our Central Virginia Violent Crimes Task Force which focuses on serial, armed commercial robberies," FBI spokeswoman Dee Rybiski said. "We can confirm the arrests of two suspects, on (state) armed robbery charges brought by the Henrico County Police Division; and that these suspects are being held pending federal charges. No further details to be released."

Police were first alerted to the robbery at about 1 a.m. Anyone with information about the robbery can report a tip to Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
