Police Searching For Four Armed Men Linked To Robbery Spree
Columbus Police were searching for three to four armed men they believed were linked to a Sunday night robbery spree.
Police said the first robbery happened at 9:30 p.m. Sunday night at a BP Gas Station on 17th Avenue.
A clerk at the gas station told police that four men wearing black masks robbed him of cash, an iPad and other items. He told detectives that the suspects made him get on the ground so he was not able to get a good description of the vehicle they were driving.
Police said at 10:00 p.m. the suspects went to the 1200 block of Parsons Avenue to Grandma's Pizza. Employees reported that the armed men got away with the cash registers.
Police said the men then went to Amer’s convenient store on Cassidy Avenue and stole a large amount of money.
Robbery detectives are also looking into two other incidents that occurred on Thursday.
The robbers fit the same description - all of them are wearing gloves and masks and all are armed.
Sami’s carryout was one of the victims from Thursday, just down the street from Amer’s store.
Officers and robbery detectives are working to review surveillance video from the stores.
Police said no one was injured in any of the robberies.
Police are asking for any information regarding the two sets of robberies.
