Officers responded to the Metro PCS store located at 1644 Decoto Road to investigate a just occurred robbery. The victim told the investigating officers that he was alone in the store when two black males wearing black ski masks and dark clothing entered the store and robbed him. One of the suspects pointed a black firearm at him while they demanded money from the cash register. The victim complied and the suspects fled on foot in an unknown direction.
On routine patrol, officers stopped a suspicious vehicle for parking illegally at the top of Appian Way in the 7-Hills neighborhood. A warrant check revealed an outstanding arrest warrant for the driver of the car and an officer at the scene recognized the name of the driver as a possible suspect in a residential burglary that had occurred earlier in the week. A subsequent search of the vehicle turned up stolen property and evidence of that particular burglary. The burglary victim was transported to the scene where he identified his stolen property. Officers then conducted a search of the suspect's residence and located additional stolen property. The suspect was arrested and transported to jail.
