It was a busy Sunday morning for Colorado Springs police as they continue to investigate a string of robberies in a very short time span.
In Southeast Colorado Springs, five robberies were reported in just 27 minutes.
“That is a lot in such a short time period," said Lt. Jim Sokolik with CSPD. "It looks like at this point in time that they are potentially all connected, so that’s part of the investigation going on to determine what occurred and if in fact these are all related or not.”
Police got information that two males entered each of the five stores with a weapon and demanded money. The first reported incident was at a Diamond Shamrock just after 2 a.m.
If you break it down, five stores in 27 minutes average to about one store every five minutes. Luckily, no one was hurt.
Sokolik said they are still looking for at least two suspects.
“Based on the locality, based on the time frame, based on some similarities there is potential that some of these are connected. I don’t know if all of them are connected but it certainly something we are going to address.”
As police continue to investigate, we will keep you updated as soon as we learn more.
