Superior Police are investigating two robberies that took place within 10 minutes of each other early Tuesday morning.
At approximately 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, officers were dispatched to the Superior Walgreens store, 2015 Tower Ave., for a robbery that had just taken place, according to a release from Capt. Nick Alexander of the Superior Police Department. A lone female had entered the store and snatched money from the cash register before fleeing the store. An immediate search of the area did not turn up any suspect or evidence.
Approximately nine minutes later, a robbery call came from the Hammond Spur convenience store, 502 Hammond Ave. The description of the suspect matched the suspect in the Walgreens robbery. However, there was a second female accomplice in this robbery.
In both robberies, the suspect pretended to be making a purchase at the checkout counter and once the clerk opened the register the suspect grabbed the money. No weapon was used or threatened to be used during either robbery and no one was injured. A small amount of cash was taken from both businesses.
Anyone with information on either of these incidents is asked to call the Superior Police Department tipline, 715 395-7468, on the department Facebook page, www.facebook.com/SuperiorPD, on the department website, www.ci.superior.wi.us/index.aspx?nid=174 or by texting the keyword spdtip and your tip to 847411.
