Two people have been arrested in a suspected serial robbery case.

Officials with the Netro Nashville Police Department and FBI have arrested Christie Spears and 18-year-old Monray Johnson.

Spears was in custody for several aggravated robberies in Wilson County.

They were both suspected in grocery store robberies not only in Tennessee, but also Kentucky and Alabama.

In some cases, investigators said a man believed to be Johnson would stand near a grocery store's customer service desk while someone called the customer service counter. 

The person on the phone would then order the clerk to give the man cash or be shot.

The investigation was said to be ongoing and the pair may face federal charges.
