Police kept busy on Christmas Eve morning
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Police had a busy Christmas Eve morning after several thefts in St. Louis City and County.
St. Louis Metropolitan Police said two suspects walked into a Circle K convenience store on South Broadway and East Davis Street around midnight Tuesday. One suspect pointed a gun at the clerks and demanded money and lottery tickets. An officer at the command post says the suspects ran away on foot and are still at large. No one was injured.
At 12:30 a.m., St. Louis County Police rushed to the T-Mobile store on South Lindbergh and Union Road. This is right across the street from South County Mall. Investigators said a man kicked in one of the windows to the store, ran in and grabbed a bunch of display phones. He ran into the residential area nearby.
This is the same T-Mobile location where police say two masked suspects tied up an employee and stole money from the safe in June 2013.
Then at 2:00 a.m., University City Police rushed to a 7-11 convenience store on Olive Boulevard and 82nd Street. Police said two suspects walked into the store. One had a gun. They left with an undisclosed amount of cash, but they may have left behind a good description on the store’s surveillance.
