Chicago police are putting South Side businesses on alert after a series of robberies.

Surveillance photos show the robbers who held up two Rent-A-Center stores. Police say, in both cases, a man and woman walked into the stores, asked about making a purchase, then announced a robbery.

Authorities say the thieves used the stores' trucks to transport the large televisions that they took.

The first robbery happened in December 2007 in the 7800 block of South Ashland Avenue. The other happened in September 2008 in the 5800 block of South Western Avenue.
