Two people are arrested after two Tulsa convenience stores are robbed overnight. 

The first robbery call went out around 11:30 p.m. Sunday at the Kum and Go store at 51st and 145th East Avenue. 

Tulsa Police say a man, identified as 21-year-old Courtney Shaw, implied he had a weapon, demanded cash and ran to a white Nissan SUV driven by a woman, identified as 20-year-old Sarah Graham. 

About 20 minutes later, Tulsa Police say it is believed Shaw went into a QuikTrip on 71st Street. 

Again the suspect implied he had a gun and left with cash in a white Nissan SUV. 

A short time later, a Tulsa Police officer pulled over a white Nissan SUV at 81st and 78th East Avenue as he responded to the robbery call. 

Tulsa Police say one of the victims identified Shaw and Graham and the vehicle used in the robberies. 

Shaw and Graham are in the Tulsa County jail on robbery complaints.
