Press Release

Serial Robber

Sent on 8/24/2016 3:20:20 PM

On August 23, 2016, at approximately 8:07 p.m., Foothills District deputies responded to a robbery at the Subway restaurant located at 3605 West Cortaro Farms Road. When deputies arrived, they learned a male entered the store and demanded the employee give him money from the cash register. No one was injured during the incident; however, the suspect implied a weapon as he urged the employee for money. Detectives believe this is the same individual who robbed a Walgreens on August 17, 2016, as well as a Diamond Shamrock Corner Store on August 19, 2016. A Holiday Inn Express, located in Marana, was also robbed on August 19, 2016. The suspect was described as an African American male, 5’8” tall, medium build, with a dark complexion. It is reported the suspect is wearing various types of hats and sunglasses at each robbery. Detectives with the Robbery/Assault Unit are handling the investigation and are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect. Anyone with information on the identity and/or whereabouts of the suspect is urged to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME.
