Police asking help

to ID robbery suspects

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

Now the Tucson Police Department asks for the public’s help in identifying some of them, 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 July 10, a man entered a 7-Eleven 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.
