Pair of Santa Fe robberies could be connected, police say | Local News

Two robberies that happened within 15 minutes of each other Friday night may be connected, Santa Fe police said.

Officers responded to a call at the Holiday Inn Express on Cerrillos Road around 10:45 p.m. after receiving an emergency call, Lt. Jimmie Montoya.

When they arrived, police were told two men in their 20s, dressed in black and wearing masks, were holding firearms and got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

A few minutes later, Montoya said, police received another call about a robbery, this time at Liquid Company Package Liquor on St. Michael’s Drive. Montoya said the suspects matched the earlier description.

“We can’t say for sure it’s the same,” Montoya said, “but the descriptions are very, very, very similar.”

Montoya could not identify what items or how much money might have been stolen from Liquid Company or the vehicle the suspects fled in and said the investigation is continuing.
