Earlier this month, Smithfield detectives linked the suspects to another robbery there and in Surry County. One of the suspects even confessed to the robbery in Smithfield on camera, police say.

According to a story on WAVY.com, detectives traveled to the Eastern Shore Regional Jail to interview 31-year-old Brandon Gibson.

He identified himself as the person walking into the 7-Eleven on Benns Church Boulevard in Smithfield before it was robbed.
