Omaha Police officials believe that two recent coffee shop robberies may be related.

According to OPD, they responded to a robbery call at a Scooters Thursday morning. 

Officers spoke to employees who said a male (possibly Hispanic) in his late 30's with a dark mustache wearing a black hoodie and black pants knocked on the back door of the business.

Authorities say an employee opened the door when suspect pulled the door open and pointed a gun at the employee.

OPD officials say the suspect took money from the cash drawers and property from two employees.

The suspect left in the passenger side of a dark colored vehicle.

Investigators believe this robbery is related to the Wednesday's robbery at Crane Coffee.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact Omaha Crime Stoppers at 444-STOP, at www.omahacrimestoppers.org.
