Police arrest Tampa men in string of robberies

TAMPA — Police arrested two more people Friday they think were involved in several violent robberies across four Tampa Bay area counties.

Alden B. Lewis, 27, and Antonio C. Harris, 21, both of Tampa, were charged with three counts of armed robbery, three counts of armed kidnapping and drug possession.

Tampa police said they were part of the group that robbed 10 places, including a hair salon and two gas stations in Pasco, and six 7-Elevens in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties. The holdups began May 11. The most recent robbery, a Land O'Lakes Mobil station, took place Thursday.

Tampa police said detectives across six jurisdictions identified the robbers' masks, a devil mask and a hockey mask to link the robberies.

Two other men were arrested in Pasco County Thursday and were charged with the same crimes.
