Authorities in Carbon County believe they have the two men responsible for two different hold-ups at the same store in three days.

James Archer and Freddie Knight both face robbery charges after police say they robbed the same convenient food mart in Palmerton.

Police said Archer held up the store on Delaware Avenue in Palmerton last Thursday.

Sunday, Knight held up the same store, according to police.

Authorities said they recovered cash from that hold-up.

Both men are locked up in the Carbon County prison.

Another woman also faces charges related to the first robbery. Arlene Jones is accused of driving Archer to the place. Jones was released on bail.

Authorities said all three suspects live in the same rooming house in Palmerton.
