(Norristown) -- Two men face numerous charges in connection with a series of armed robberies and thefts that targeted Walmart stores across seven Pennsylvania counties.

Authorities say 28-year-old Jon Beverly, of Philadelphia, and 26-year-old Maurkeece Foreman, of Pottstown stole more than $52,000 in merchandise during ten holdups that occurred during a six-month spree that ended in early January.

The charges they face include conspiracy, theft and robbery with the threat of serious bodily injury.

The robberies occurred at Walmart stores in Montgomery, Bucks, Carbon, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Luzerne and Montgomery counties.

Authorities say Freeman put a gun to an employee's head during one robbery.
