In a 15-hour period, June 11-12, 2019, Los Dos Molinos Restaurant in Phoenix was hit not once, but twice by the same burglar. Both times he took advantage of workers being busy elsewhere.

“He went into the back of the restaurant and burglarized the restaurant by taking a computer and iPad,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Steve Reaume says.

The popular restaurant is on Central Avenue north of Dobbins Road. Reaume says the suspect is in his late 20s or early 30s and has dark hair and facial hair.

He was caught on surveillance cameras and there are some pretty clear pictures of him.

Our next case takes us to east-central Phoenix about 1:45 a.m. on Nov. 29, 2020. Two guys walked into a convenience store at 32nd and Roosevelt streets.

“The suspects entered the Circle K and told the clerk to sit down while displaying a handgun,” Reaume says. “Both suspects began grabbing cigarettes then fled the store.”

They didn’t take cash or anything other than the cigarettes.

“All they wanted was smokes and they took it to the next level by displaying a handgun and threatening the clerk, making it an armed robbery,” Reaume says.
