Same pair could be behind rash of robberies

POSTED January 24, 2012 8:57 p.m.

Turlock police investigators are looking into the possibility that three recent robberies were carried out by the same two suspects.

The robberies took place on Friday and Saturday.

The first robbery was reported at 10:48 p.m. Friday at the Dollar Tree store at 3045 N. Tegner Road.

According to the police department, the two men, both donning ski masks and armed with handguns, concealed themselves inside the store and confronted the employees after the store closed.

The robbers were able to escape after taking an undisclosed amount of cash.

The next two robberies happened early Saturday morning about an hour and a half apart and miles away from one another. One robbery was reported at 5:23 a.m. in the 1300 block of Shady Lane and one was at 7:15 a.m. in the 1000 block of Boxwood Way.

In both cases two armed men confronted the victims and stole their wallets before fleeing on foot.

At the Boxwood robbery the victim was hit on the head with a handgun.

The police department did not have any further descriptions of the robbers, but believe the three robberies could all be connected.

Anyone with information about any of the robberies is asked to contact the police department at 668-5550.
