CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Police Department says that they are searching for multiple suspects that are connected to a string of armed robberies over the last week.

There have been four armed robberies in just the past week at the following locations: 

  • East Avenue Liquor - robbed on New Year's Eve at 1354 East Ave # H, Chico

  • All the Best Video - robbed on New Years Day at 2422 Cohasset Rd, Chico

  • A&M Vapes - robbed on Jan. 3 at 1350 Mangrove Ave Suite 185, Chico

  • Nord Avenue Market - robbed on Jan. 5 at 409 Nord Ave, Chico

Chico police are also going back through other robbery investigations in the past month to see if any are related. 

Chico Police Chief Mike O'Brien spoke with Action News Now about the cases and how they are investigating them. 

"There are different descriptions sometimes," he said. "In moments of heightened distress, sometimes those descriptions can be skewed. We do believe there is more than one (suspect)." 

O'Brien said the city has seen a spike in robberies recently. However, he did not say if that is any way related to an increase in population from the Camp Fire.
