Reward Offered for Armed Robbery Suspects Sought in SW Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE—The FBI’s Milwaukee Field Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying multiple suspects in connection with two store robberies in Monroe and Platteville, Wisconsin, with similar circumstances.

The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the persons who committed these crimes.

On January 26, 2024, at approximately 3:20 p.m., according to the Monroe Police Department, three men entered the Abbarrotes LaOrizabena Grocery Store, located at 1504 11th Street, and held the cashier and one customer at gunpoint. The men took the cashier’s gray purse which contained a large amount of cash as well as money from a drawer. The three suspects are believed to be Hispanic. After the robbery, the suspects fled on foot one block and entered a dark gray Honda Accord driven by a fourth suspect. The vehicle has front-end damage, is missing the front Honda emblem, has an indented hood, and has what appears to be a dealership logo plate or paper temporary plate attached to the rear of the vehicle.

On February 10, 2024, around 3:20 p.m., the Platteville Police Department received several phone calls about an armed robbery at Alexandra’s Mexican Store, located at 1350 E. Business Highway 151 in Platteville. Three Hispanic males entered the store wearing hooded sweatshirts and medical masks. A gun was displayed, and one victim was pushed by a suspect in a red hooded sweatshirt. The suspects fled the store and drove away in a white 2012-2015 Honda Pilot.

Anyone with information about these crimes or witnesses who might have seen or heard anything suspicious are asked to contact the FBI Milwaukee Office at (414) 276-4684 or online at tips.fbi.gov.
