Nampa Police arrested a 15-year-old male runaway in connection to three robberies since last Friday.
The suspect is charged with three counts of robbery and three counts of burglary. He is cooperating with detectives, and multiple accomplices have been identified and are pending arrests or arrest warrants, Sgt. Joe Ramirez said.
Accomplices include a suspect who was in the store during the Sunday robbery, a getaway driver and others who received stolen property. All suspects are juveniles, Ramirez said.
On Sunday, a man wearing a Real Tree brand hoodie robbed a Nampa convenience store in the 200 block of 22nd Avenue South, the third robbery in three days, police said.
In the Sunday robbery, the suspect was accompanied by an accomplice. In the two previous incidents, the man acted alone.
The men entered the store Sunday at about 9:30 p.m., Sgt. Joe Ramirez said. One of the men displayed a knife and the robbers demanded money and tobacco products. The subjects were last seen fleeing the store on foot.
The same store was robbed at 11:30 p.m. Friday by a man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a “Real Tree” logo, a red beanie and a blue bandanna wrapped around the lower half of his face. The suspect, armed with a knife, also demanded money and tobacco.
In the Sunday robbery, the first suspect was described as 6 feet tall with a black “Real Tree” hoodie, a red bandana and red shorts. The second man was of similar height and was wearing a white hoodie and gray shorts.
At 1:30 a.m. Friday, police received a call for an armed robbery at a convenience store in the 800 block of 12th Avenue South. The suspect fled the scene in a grey minivan. Witnesses described the man as 6 feet tall, white, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with a "Real Tree" logo, a red beanie and a black bandana wrapped around the lower half of his face. Once again, witnesses told police he had a knife and demanded money and chewing tobacco.
On Monday around 1 p.m., police received a tip and responded to the 500 block of 13th Ave. North, police said. When police made contact at a residence there, the suspect fled. Police apprehended and arrested the teen.
Anyone having information on these robberies are asked to contact Nampa police detectives at 465-2257 or Crime Stoppers at 343-2677.
