Different suspects, but these three crimes have a lot in common — all were armed robberies committed along 43rd Avenue in Phoenix and all of them happened during November 2019.

First: The CVS store at 43rd Avenue and Thomas Road. It was Monday, Nov. 18, just after 8:30 a.m., when the robber walked in.

“He’s got a gray hoodie pulled around his face,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Jamie Rothschild said. “But it can’t hide his dark beard or the gloves he was wearing.”

The guy approached the clerk then announced, “This is a robbery.”

“And as he’s doing that, he’s pulling out a handgun,” Rothschild said.

He got away with the cash and Rothschild said because of the smile or smirk on the robber’s face, possible witnesses may not have realized what was happening.

This pair of robbers hit a Frederico’s at 43rd Avenue and Indian School Road and the Dairy Queen at 43rd and Dunlap avenues.

“The first one on Friday, Nov. 22 and the second one on Sunday, Nov. 24, just a few days later,” Rothschild said.

Both suspects had handguns and demanded money from the registers. They pointed their weapons at both employees and customers.

“Even though one of them was trying to hide his identity with a hoodie and sunglasses, his hoodie had some kind of distinctive label on the right side of his chest” Rothschild said.
