Police arrested two Rapid City men Wednesday, following three armed robberies:
At 9:10 p.m. on Dec. 18, a male subject entered Big D at 850 E. North Street. He walked up to the clerk and asked for a pack of cigarettes. When the clerk asked for identification, the man pulled out a handgun and demanded cash. The clerk turned over an undisclosed amount of cash, and the suspect fled.
At 1:20 p.m. on Dec. 19, police were called to Red E Cash at 315 E. Saint Patrick St. A second man approached the counter, revealing a gun tucked into his jacket. He demanded money of the employee. The employee refused, and the suspect fled.
At 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 19, police were called to Little Caesars at 2120 W. Main St. A man pointed a gun at the manager and demanded money. The manager refused, and the suspect was seen leaving the scene in a vehicle with one other man.
The vehicle and both men were located at 102 N. Maple Ave. The men were determined to be the suspects in all three robberies. Max Imberi, age 18 of Rapid City, and Ryan Reub, age 23 of Rapid City, were both arrested for armed robbery. A bb gun was also recovered. The investigation into these incidents is continuing.
