Four Juvenile Robbery suspects captured

On November 12th at approximately 9:50 p.m., an officer observed 3 males running out of a store in the 4400 block of S. Mead St. The officer initially thought the 3 males were involved in a shoplift and chased after them.

At about the same time, units were advised of an armed robbery at the business. The suspects were described as wearing bandanas and armed with a handgun and a knife. The officer was able to catch up and apprehend one of the suspects.

Numerous units responded to the area and located the 3 remaining suspects within a couple blocks of the store and took them into custody. The victims were able to positively identify the suspecsts.

A witness in the area stated that she observed 3 suspects hop a fence and run through her backyard. A K9 track was conducted and a handgun was located in her yard. 

Items taken in the robbery were recovered on the suspects’ person. All suspects were transported to the SPD Robbery unit for questioning. They were later booked into the Youth Service Center for Investigation of Robbery.
