Tulsa Police have arrested two men after a string of armed robberies early Friday morning.

A police officer spotted their vehicle near 101st and Sheridan about five minutes after they robbed a Kum and Go at 110th and Riverside.  Tulsa Police followed the truck to 91st and Memorial where they made the arrests. 

Tulsa Police identify the pair as 23-year-old James Brooks and 23-year-old Walter McCombs. 

The first robbery happened around 3 a.m. when Broken Arrow Police say the pair went into a Kum and Go convenience store at state highway 51 and Oneta Road and demanded money from the clerk.  The clerk gave them the cash when they showed her a gun, and they drove off in a red pickup truck. 

About 45 minutes later, Broken Arrow Police say the same suspects robbed a Fiesta Mart at 91st and Garnett.  The suspects again showed a gun and got away with cash. 

No weapon has been found yet, but Tulsa Police did recover some of the cash. 

No one was hurt in any of the robberies.
