The robberies all occurred in the midnight to early morning hours.

In two of the robberies, the suspects’ pistol whipped the victims. In each robbery the suspects stole US Currency and merchandise, and in two of the incidents, the suspects also stole the businesses’ ATMs.
Mr. Gage and Mr. Tucker’s next court date is October 23, 2023, to set the date for the preliminary hearing in this matter.
