4 arrested in 3 Tempe pizza robberies

TEMPE, AZ (CBS5) -

Four suspects have been arrested in connection with a series of armed robberies in Tempe.

Police said the men may possibly be linked to four other robberies in Phoenix. 

The robberies were committed between July 20 and Sept. 23.

On Oct. 17, Tempe police detectives arrested the last four suspects they believe to be behind the Tempe robberies. 

Those arrested were Aaron Islas, 18; Julio Lugo, 18; Jorge Ramirez-Flores, 18; and Anthony Gonzales, 17. They were booked into jail on charges of armed robbery.

Islas was charged with one count of armed robbery in a holdup on July 20 at Little Caesars in the 2700 block of West Baseline Road in Tempe.

Ramirez-Flores, Lugo and Gonzales were charged with one count each of armed robbery in connection with another robbery at the same Little Caesar's on Sept. 12.

Ramierz-Flores and Gonzales were also charged with one count each of armed robbery for another holdup at a Little Caesar's in the 700 block of East Broadway Road on Sept. 23.

Police said their investigation revealed the four suspects committed three robberies in Tempe where a gun was displayed and/or threatened.

The suspects dressed similarly in each of the robberies.

Officers said all four men admitted to the Tempe robberies.

Phoenix police provided information about the suspects to Tempe officers, who then made the arrests.
