Clovis police are investigating a possible connection between Thursday night’s robbery at Dairy Queen and a similar robbery last week at an Amarillo Dairy Queen, according to a press release.
According to the release:
Around 8 p.m. Thursday, two males, one wearing a bandana over his face, the other a white Halloween mask, robbed the Dairy Queen at 2221 Main Street.
• The suspects, dressed in dark clothing and hooded sweatshirts, had their right hands wrapped in plastic bags and pointed them at employees, demanding money from the cash registers. It is estimated they were given hundreds of dollars and fled the restaurant through a back door
• Witnesses told police they believed the suspects to be Hispanic because they spoke broken English.
• A “very similar” armed robbery occurred Oct. 26 at a Dairy Queen in Amarillo in which the suspect was wearing a Halloween mask.
