CHEYENNE,Wyo.— The Cheyenne Police Department is investigating three robberies occurring over a one week span with the same suspect involved in each one.
On September 25, at about 1:00 a.m., CPD officers responded to a robbery at the Loaf N Jug at 5539 Yellowstone Rd. Three suspects were observed on surveillance cameras.
One suspect was wearing black and white Nike shoes, red pants and a black hooded sweatshirt over a red shirt and displayed a firearm. Another suspect was wearing blue jeans and a black leather jacket over a black shirt with his face covered by a dark blue bandana. A clothing description is not available for the third suspect.
On September 29, at about 3:00 a.m., CPD officers responded to a robbery at the Loaf N Jug at 1922 E. Lincolnway. A single suspect wearing red pants, a black hooded sweatshirt and a red bandanna robbed the store while displaying a firearm.
On October 2, at about 3:00 a.m., CPD officers responded to a robbery at the Diamond Shamrock at 115 N. Greeley Highway. A single suspect entered the store, went into the bathroom, and emerged wearing a red bandanna.
He displayed a firearm and demanded money from the clerk. The suspect appears to be a young Hispanic male, approximately 5’9” and was wearing a black Wyoming Cowboy’s shirt under his jacket.
All three robberies resulted in a small amount of cash being stolen from the businesses and it appears that the person displaying the firearm was the same person in all three cases.
In response to these crimes, the CPD is conducting increased patrols at convenience stores. The CPD is also working with convenience store managers to provide training on robberies and making sure surveillance and alarm systems are functional.
