About 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, 2015, officers responded to a robbery at Casey’s General Store, 3540 S. Meridian. The clerk reported being robbed at gunpoint by two men.

Suspect No. 1 is a light-skinned black man, 5-foot-5 with a thin build. He was armed with a small black-and-grey semi-automatic handgun. He was wearing a yellow-over-black long sleeve shirt and black pants, and had a red shirt tied over his face.

Suspect No. 2 also is a light-skinned black man, 5-foot-8 with a thin build, and he also had a handgun. He was wearing a black hoodie and khaki pants and had a dark colored fabric wrapped over his face. He too was armed with a handgun.


The video retrieved from the store shows the second suspect jumping over the counter and taking money from the register while the first suspect held the clerk at gunpoint. Both men ran away.

Just a short time later, at about 10:15 pm, officers were dispatched to a second robbery at the Valero at 851 S. Meridian. This clerk also reported being robbed at gunpoint, but was unable to open the register. One of the suspects grabbed a handful of M&Ms, and then they ran toward the alley west of the business.

Video from Valero shows the suspects wearing the same clothing as the suspects in the first robbery; investigators believe both robberies were committed by the same suspects.
