SACRAMENTO -- Two suspects allegedly involved in several convenience store robberies in Sacramento County have been arrested.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department announced the arrests Sunday and also reported the seizure of two vehicles involved in the robberies between Nov. 21 and Nov. 29.

"Physical evidence as well as statements and witness statements, victim statements have collaborated each other and led us to the arrest of these people we have in custody," said Shaun Hampton with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

At least five suspects were wanted in connection to the robberies at stores around the county, including an AM-PM in Carmichael and a Shell station in Arden-Arcade. The armed men would enter stores and demand cash and goods from employees and store patrons.

Four black men and one white or Hispanic man were responsible for the armed robberies. Deputies were also on the lookout for a grey or silver Dodge Stratus with a broken window and paper plates. The identities of the men who deputies arrested and the description of the vehicles that were found have not been reported by the sheriff's department.

"Our robbery detectives are working diligently with the neighboring agencies as well as other officers and investigators to develop leads and hopefully bring these other suspects to justice," Hampton said.
