(Omaha, NE) - Omaha police responded to two robbery calls near Benson Monday night, just fifteen minutes apart.

A call for a robbery came in just after 11:30 Monday night at the Bucky's on 72nd and Maple. The robbers took money and cigarettes before running off.

Within fifteen minutes of that robbery, police responded to another incident at 83rd and Maple. Robbers took cigarettes and money from the Kum & Go there, before running away.

Police haven't said if the two crimes are related. No word on any arrests just yet.
