LAS VEGAS -- Nearly two dozen armed robberies in less than two weeks seems highly unlikely, but Metro Police said it happened and they're trying to figure out who the culprits are.
Officers said they think the same two men committed 18 armed robberies in eight days. The suspected thieves are said to be white men between the ages of 20 and 30, weighing 140 to 160 pounds.
According to police, the men are targeting stores in strip malls.
“We're talking from anywhere from the Rainbow corridor on the south side of the valley, all the way to Henderson and also north of Cheyenne,” said Sgt. Steve Candelas, Metro's robbery division.
Detectives said the two suspects would walk into establishments armed and demand money. At times, the men have even gone as far as to say, “I need to feed my children," according to police.
