Two Starbucks Robberies on Friday Night, Arvada Officers Make Arrests
Arvada police are investigating two Starbucks robberies in the evening hours of Friday, October 14, 2011. 

The first incident occurred just after 7:00 p.m. at the Starbucks at 6600 Wadsworth Blvd. The second robbery took place just after 8:45 p.m. at the Starbucks at 8071 Wadsworth Blvd. 

In both incidents, an armed male entered the coffee shops and demanded money from store clerks. No one was hurt in either incident. A K-9 team was sent to each of the robberies to conduct a search of the area; however, they were not able to locate the suspect. 

The suspect is described as a white male in a dark hoodie, wearing what appears to be a ski mask. 

Police investigators will work with other law enforcement agencies to see if these incidents are connected with other metro area robberies.
