Hooded duo rob Circle K


On Jan. 13, at about 3:06 a.m., deputies with the Pima County Sheriff’s Department San Xavier District responded to a reported robbery at the Circle K store at 9810 South Nogales Highway.

The suspects were gone upon arrival of the deputies.

Detectives with the Sheriff’s Robbery/Assault Unit learned that two Hispanic males in their twenties came into the store earlier. Both subjects wore unique, matching jackets similar to those worn by a marching band. The suspects approached the clerk at the checkout counter when one of them produced a handgun. The clerk was then ordered at gunpoint to get on the ground.

The other suspect jumped over the counter and took money from the cash register and cigarettes from the display case. The suspect holding the handgun walked behind the counter while still pointing the gun at the clerk, and took bottles of alcohol from the display shelf. Both suspects then fled.

The investigation is still ongoing. Anyone who recognizes the two individuals in the video footage and/or the pictures provided with this release or who has any other information on this case is urged to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME.
