SAN JOSE (KCBS) – A woman suspected in a series of convenience store robberies and two other people, including a pregnant woman, were arrested in San Jose early Tuesday after a brief police chase, authorities said.
Investigators credited good, old-fashioned police work in finding the woman who they say was behind a number of 7-Eleven stores in the city’s Evergreen area.
“The suspect walks into the 7-Eleven, armed with a handgun. Has a mask, is wearing gloves, takes a small amount of cash and a bunch of lottery tickets and leaves,” San Jose Police Lt. Mike Sullivan told KCBS.
Police were alerted and officers quickly determined that the suspect in the early Tuesday morning heist, a woman, matched the description of a female robber suspected of hitting two 7-Eleven stores in the area roughly one month ago.
