DENVER (CBS4) – Robberies of at least five 7-Eleven stores took place Monday morning in the northern part of the Denver metro area.
Police originally said they were looking for three suspects, but then word came that two teenagers were arrested. Because they are juveniles police aren’t releasing their names.
Two of the crimes took place near the National Western Stock Show grounds just north of Interstate 70. Those were at 47th and Washington Street and 47th Avenue and Brighton Boulevard. Crimes also took place at 7-Elevens at the following locations:
– 38th Avenue & Federal Boulevard in Denver’s Highlands neighborhood
– 64th and Washington in Adams County
– 7201 Lowell Boulevard in Westminster
Police said early Monday they were looking for a four-door white Honda Civic with Colorado license plate number 699 SWW. As of midday it wasn’t clear if that car — which was reportedly stolen — had been located.
Police said while the crimes are similar, it’s not definitive at this point that the suspects under arrest are responsible for all of the incidents.
Another robbery took place at an e-cigarettes store Monday morning, and so far there’s no word if that crime might also be connected.
