2 Robberies in 2 Days

This is the second robbery in two days. Help us catch these punks. They pointed a gun in the clerk's face and took cash, beer and cigarettes from a Common Cents store on West Broadway early Wednesday morning.

The suspects are described as two Hispanic males. One is about 5 foot 7 inches tall, 160 pounds with short black hair wearing a black t-shirt, black shorts and a dark cloth over his face. The second suspect is described as 5 foot 5 inches tall, 140 pounds with short black hair wearing a light colored hoodie. 

The first man came into the convenience store, located at 1940 W. Broadway, sometime before 2:45 a.m. pointing a handgun at him and demanding money from the cash register. As the suspect took the money from the cash register a second man with a handgun came into the store and stole a case of beer and two cartons of cigarettes.  The first man also grabbed some Bic lighters before the two suspects left the store on foot.

I hope that anyone who recognizes the individuals in the video will help us make an arrest. Call us at 529-1200 or if you want to be anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 522-1983.

Oh, and just in case you're wondering why we didn't just arrest them when we took the video, we got the video from the store security camera.  -- yes, some people ask those kinds of questions.
