Three men wanted for a series of robberies in north and southeast Houston remain on the run. Police say they've hit at least four Little Caesar's pizza restaurants in the last month. Now investigators are hoping new pictures of the suspects can lead to their arrests.

The suspects are described only as black males, possibly in their 20s. They were wearing dark clothing and gloves, and used bandannas to cover their faces.

The suspects are believed responsible for burglaries of Little Caesar's Pizza restaurants on the following dates and locations:

  • March 13 - 16282 Imperial Valley Drive
  • March 27 - 212 East Crosstimbers
  • April 5 - 139 Little York Road
  • April 7 - 9855 Blackhawk Boulevard
In each incident, the restaurants were closed at the time. The suspects broke the front glass door with a sledgehammer to make entry into the businesses and then broke into safes and stole cash. On one occasion, the suspects used a circular handsaw to break into the safe. It is not known if the suspects fled on foot or in a vehicle.

Anyone with information in these cases is urged to contact the HPD Burglary and Theft Division at 713-308-0900 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
