OLYMPIA, Wash. Thurston County investigators say they have arrested one of the men wanted in a series of armed robberies of convenience stores.
Last Tuesday police said the same two men robbed three convenience stores. The first occurred in DuPont, the others were in unincorporated Thurston County.
In each instance, the men pointed a shotgun at the clerks to get them to open the cash register.
Detectives released surveillance video of each of the robberies.
A Thurston County Sheriff's Office spokesman said media exposure helped them identify their suspect.
Investigators are still looking for the second suspect.
