Two suspects are sought in a pair of apparently related armed robberies in Garden Grove. The most recent one occurred Wednesday just before 3 a.m. at a convenience store on Euclid Street, according to Lt. Bob Bogue of the Garden Grove Police Department.
That robbery was at the 7-11 store, 13471 Euclid St, just south of the Garden Grove Freeway. Police describe the heist in this way: One suspect entered the store, bought a cigarette lighter, and then left. A second suspect immediately arrived and pointed a handgun at the clerk demanding cash and getting $200. The suspects fled together in a dark sedan.
