This morning just before 2:00 am two subjects entered the Circle K at 6744 E. McDowell wearing something concealing their faces. One suspect stood at the door armed with a shotgun while the second suspect approached the register and demanded cash from the clerk. An additional victim walked up to the store, unaware of what was taking place, and was told to give his money also to the suspects. The suspects fled in a black Toyota.
A short time later an SPD officer in the area saw a vehicle fitting the description near Scottsdale and Oak and conducted a traffic stop. Through investigation it was learned that the two subjects in the vehicle were the suspects from the Armed Robbery. They were taken into custody. The gun along with proceeds from the crime were found inside of the vehicle.
Both suspects were booked on Armed Robbery charges. Booking photos to follow when they become available.
