Western Colorado’s ‘Restaurant Bandits’ Strike Again…. Twice! [VIDEO]
Thieves whose images were captured on video as they robbed a Fruita restaurant have struck again... not once, but twice. Take a look at these videos, and see if you can identify the suspects, and help authorities in making an arrest.
The video above was taken via security cameras at The Grand International Buffet on Highway 50 in Grand Junction. This burglary is the third in a string of crimes committed by thieves who seem to have a certain penchant for robbing Asian restaurants.
The second robbery in the crime spree occurred at Taipei Tokyo at 1605 Grand Avenue in Glenwood Springs.
All three of these crimes occurred on the same day, November 17, 2014.
In every case, the group walks into the restaurant and inquire about seating for a group of 14 - 15 people for a birthday. While employees make efforts to accommodate the request, one or two of the suspects go into the restaurant's office area and take cash, credit cards, and wallets.
