TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Police arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with seven armed robberies that all took place on Wednesday, says Sgt. Chris Widmer with Tucson Police.
Widmer tells KGUN9 that Richard Ulloa-Gutierrez visited seven convenience stores with a handgun, and demanded money from employees.
No one was injured in any of the robberies and witnesses were able to give a vehicle description to officers.
Ulloa-Gutierrez went to three 7/11 stores, three Circle K stores and one Diamond Shamrock store.
Officers found his car in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 6200 block of south Campbell Avenue only minutes after the last robbery.
Officers then found him near the vehicle.
Ulloa-Gutierrez was booked into the Pima County Jail for six counts of Armed Robbery and one count of attempted armed robbery.
