The first robbery took place on June 5, near the intersection of Fort Apache and Tropicana.

A suspect exited the car and demanded the victim drop the bag of money.
The second robbery took place on July 5, near Silverado Ranch Boulevard and Bermuda Road. Police say after the passenger of an armored truck walked out of a store holding money bags, the two suspects ran up to the passenger, guns drawn, and demanded that the victim drop the bags.

"The girls coming to the corner they tried to hide," said Olive.
On June 5, a victim, who was the sole driver of an armored truck, was confronted by a robber who demanded cash.
The driver complied before the robber drove away in a newer white sedan according to police.
Then on July 5, one guard stayed in the armored truck while another guard went inside the store to collect money bags.
The victim was confronted by two robbers when he left the store with money. The robbers had their guns drawn, later taking off in a blue colored sedan.
