Police looking for suspects in armed pizza restaurant robberies
By: Jesse Martinez
LAS CRUCES, N.M. Police are looking for any suspects involved in a series of pizza restaurant armed robberies.
Witnesses told police that a Hispanic man about 5 feet 9 inches tall robbed the Pizza Hut at 2205 Missouri Ave. at around 9:30 p.m. Friday. The suspect was wearing a gray sweatshirt, black ski mask and baggy blue jeans, and he is believed to have a tattoo on the left side of his neck that may have cursive writing, police said.
Two days later, a Little Caesars was robbed by a man with a similar description around 10 p.m. Sunday.
Witnesses said the Little Caesars robber was a Hispanic man in his 20s that was about 5 feet 7 inches tall and also wore a gray sweatshirt, black ski mask and baggy blue jeans.
Police are unsure if both crimes are connected or were carried out by the same person, even though the descriptions are similar.
Police said the Pizza Hut on Missouri Avenue was also robbed by an armed man that fit the same description on July 27.
Anyone with information on any of the robberies is asked to call Las Cruces Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). A reward of up to $1,000 may be given for information that leads to an arrest.
