Robbery Arrest

On 07/08/17 a male suspect entered the Walgreens Pharmacy at 1159 E Southern and presented a hand note requesting Xanax. The pharmacist and an additional witness thought he had a weapon and would harm them if they did not comply. He fled the scene on foot with the prescription pills. Video surveillance was obtained and a suspect description was given. On 07/10/17 the same male entered the Walgreens Pharmacy at 1142 W Guadalupe and made the same demands for Xanax. Mesa Police Officers arrived on scene and observed the suspect leaving in a black Chevy Trail Blazer. Officers recognized the suspect from the 07/08 incident and attempted a traffic stop on the suspect. He did not stop and caused a collision at Dobson and Elliott Rd in Chandler. Upon further investigation Detectives positively identify the suspect as Angelo Moreno and were able to located and place him under arrest later that day. Angelo was charged with Armed Robbery, Unlawful Flight from Law Enforcement, Possession of Dangerous Drugs and Possession of Marijuana. Great work by all involved.
