TAMPA, Fla. – Tampa Police officers are currently working an active scene after two convenience stores were held up Monday afternoon by two subjects.
The details of the investigation are preliminary at this time.
Two subjects robbed the Super 7 store at 4808 E. Broadway around 4:45 p.m. and fled. Shortly after, Tampa Police spotted the subject’s vehicle outside the Liberty Gas Station on E. Lake Ave where a second robbery had just occurred.
Officers pursued the subjects who crashed a short distance away. Both were taken into custody near 29th St. and Lake Ave. after a perimeter search. Detectives believe the robberies may be tied to recent robberies in the city and county.
