Multiple robbery suspects have kept Tucson police officers busy this summer.

Now the Tucson Police Department asks for the public’s help in identifying some suspects, Sgt. Chris Widmer, department spokesman, said in a news release.

Anyone who recognizes a suspect from store surveillance photos should call 911 or 88-CRIME. A reward may be offered.


On June 26 a man entered a Circle K at 4301 E. Pima Street at North Columbus Boulevard, demanded cigarettes and implied that he would hurt the clerk if he did not cooperate.


On July 10 a man entered a 7-11 at 4680 E. Broadway at South Swan Road. He told the clerk he had a weapon and demanded money. When the clerk did not give him money, the man demanded flavored cigarettes and fled.


On July 27 two men entered a Circle K at 3990 N. Stone Avenue at East Roger Road. One went behind the counter and grabbed cigarettes; the other stole a case of beer. As the clerk went to the door to she which way they were fleeing, one of the men told her he was going to shoot her.


On July 28 a man entered a Viva Burrito at 1372 W. Saint Mary’s Road between North Silverbell Road and North Grande Avenue. He showed the clerk a handgun and demanded the money from the register.


On August 1 a man entered a Family Dollar store at 7026 E. Golf Links Road west of South Kolb Road, pulled a knife and held it at the clerk as he removed money from the register. The suspect was seen leaving the parking lot in a gold-color Toyota car made between 2000 2005.
