One teenage suspect in three weekend convenience store armed robberies had been caught as of Monday, but Unified Police continued to hunt for his two accomplices.
Unified Police Lt. Brian Lohrke said the first two holdups occurred within 12 minutes of each other on Sunday. The first was at a 7-Eleven store in Milcreek, 2287 E. 3300 South, about 10:35 p.m. It was followed by another at 10:47 p.m. in Midvale, 6852 S State Street.
In the first robbery, three masked male teens — one with a black handgun — confronted a clerk outside the store. While the gunman held the clerk, the other two suspects robbed the store of an undisclosed amount of cigarettes.
