Two suspects remain on the loose after they robbed a Family Dollar Store Saturday morning, and officers are now investigating if this is connected to a string of other robberies across the Denver metro area.
Denver Police said the robbery happened at around 10:30 a.m.
Two black men, one armed with a handgun, went into the Family Dollar Store at West 19th Avenue and Federal Boulevard, according to DPD spokesperson Doug Schepman.
No injuries were reported in the robbery, Schepman told Denver7.
-- Robbery also in Thornton --
Thirty minutes earlier, in Thornton, another Family Dollar store was robbed at gunpoint near the area of 88th Avenue and Washington Street.
Police said two armed black men wearing blue bandannas on their faces escaped in an unknown vehicle going in an unknown direction.
While the robberies appear to be similar, law enforcement can't say for sure if the two are related, according to Thornton PD Sergeant Matt Cabot.
