Not a big deal?
Well, later, that same night, at about 10:45 p.m., the suspect returned to the store -- this time with a gun in his hand. He walked directly to the counter and demanded money and cigarettes from the clerk.
He got the goods and then shot the clerk in the leg. He again fled in the white four-door sedan. The clerk was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Sometime between 11:30 p.m. on August 14 and 5 a.m. on August 15, unknown suspects broke into a garage near 3000 W. Esapartero Way in Phoenix and stole a 2009 Volkswagen Passat.
The victim's credit cards were in the vehicle and were immediately used by the two suspects to make purchases at two different locations.
Both suspects were seen leaving the stores in a light-colored, extended cab Chevrolet truck.
The victim's vehicle is still outstanding and listed as a stolen vehicle.
On August 5, at about 4:30 a.m., two men armed with knives approached a 23-year-old man as he was entering his apartment at 2323 W. Dunlap Avenue. They forced him inside his apartment, robbed him of various electronic items and his bank debit card.
The two men, described as white males, about 5-foot-8 with a medium build, forced him to reveal the PIN number to his ATM card and then left.
About 15 minutes later, the victim's debit card was used at a nearby 7-11 store and a BMO Harris Bank located in the area of 27th Avenue and Beardsley Road.
The store and bank video surveillance system captured images of this same female making both fraudulent transactions.
On August 16, at about 11:05 p.m., four suspects with covered faces entered the Burger King restaurant at 4002 E. Broadway Road in Phoenix.
Three of the suspects were armed with handguns and one suspect was armed with a long rifle.
The suspects ordered the employees to the back of the business and removed money from the safe. The suspects also took the employees cell phones and fled in an unknown direction.
