On Wednesday, police arrested Jeffrey Busby and Andrew Bruner, who they blame for 23 robberies. Police tracked the men to their home, where they found stolen cell phones and wallets, along with two guns that matched those used in the robberies.

Police then asked for some of the victims to identify the suspects.

"We had an astonishing 40 people show up for this lineup," said Sgt. Ron Pinkerton with the Houston Police Department robbery division. "These people realize the severity of the crimes that had been committed and they wanted to do their part to come in and make sure, if these were the suspects, would be charged for the crimes."

The two men have only been charged in three of the robberies, but police say their investigation is ongoing.
