Update: Four teens busted in Arapahoe County light-rail station robbery caught on camera
Update: Two high-profile crimes have taken place at metro-area light rail stations in recent days.
Big photos below.
And while three suspects who stabbed and pepper sprayed a Lakewood couple that walked away after being asked for a cigarette remain at large right now, four out of five teens suspected of robbing a man with the assistance of a gun at an Arapahoe County station are currently in custody -- and the multitude of surveillance cameras at such facilities is a big reason why they were nabbed so promptly.
As we noted in our original coverage, on view below, images of the five were captured just shy of 6 a.m. at the 9 Mile Station on South Parker Road.
Here's a larger look at the quintet entering one section of the station:
After robbing the victim in the parking garage area of the station and splitting, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office issued stills and video footage of the group and asked for the public's assistance in bringing them to justice -- and they got it.
According to the ACSO, four of the five suspects were taken into custody. Their names haven't been released due to their ages; they've been identified only as four juvenile males.
Each has been charged with aggravated robbery, a class 3 felony. They were also gifted with a $50,000 bond.
The fifth suspect identified by police is an adult. However, further info about him is being withheld due to the ongoing investigation.
In the meantime, Undersheriff David Walcher issued the following statement about the busts to date: "Due to the cooperation of Crime Stoppers and our law enforcement partners, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office made these arrests very quickly and will continue to attempt to apprehend the fifth suspect as soon as possible."
Maybe attempting a stick-up in an area with as many cameras as some TV studios wasn't such a brilliant idea after all. Here's a 9News clip about the arrests, followed by our previous coverage.
