PUEBLO – Pueblo Police are searching for two suspects involved in an armed robbery and attempted armed robbery on Friday, August 10.
Police said the two armed suspects in masks ran up to the front door at the Cash Advance America at 1633 S Prairie Avenue around 5:40 p.m. Employees told officers the suspects tried to enter the business but the doors were locked.
The suspects then reportedly fled the scene in a light gray Chevrolet Impala. Just 20 minutes later, Pueblo Police received another report of a hold-up alarm at the American Jewelry and Pawn at 2625 N Elizabeth Street.
Police said the suspects arrived at the store in the same Chevy Impala described in the previous incident. The two men reportedly held employees at gunpoint, smashed display cases and stole a number of handguns and jewelry.
According to a release, one of the men fired a round from a handgun into the office file cabinet before the suspects fled the scene. A Pueblo Police officer was able to locate the suspect vehicle around 8 p.m. in the 2000 block of E 14th Street, but the suspects ran from the car.
Officers set up a perimeter and conducted a search but were unable to locate the suspects. Evidence from the robbery was found in the suspect vehicle, police said.
One of the male suspects is described as 5’8″ to 6’0″ tall, medium build, wearing a black Brooklyn Nets cap with a white bill, black bandana with a white design (over his face), a gray long-sleeved sweatshirt, blue jeans, white and blue Nike shoes with a black swoosh, and black gloves.
The other suspect is described as 5’6″ to 5’8″ tall with a large build, wearing a gold New Orleans Saints cap with a black bill, black mask, blue long-sleeved sweatshirt, dark pants, dark shoes, and black gloves.
