Police search for Collierville construction site robbers

Collierville Police are searching for gunmen they say are responsible for a pair of armed construction site robberies.

The two armed robberies happened within days of each other, and within blocks.  Police say three men were involved in each of the construction site robberies just off Winchester in Collierville.

Both times, all three men were armed with guns.  In one of the robberies, a man with a riffle came up to a worker and demanded money.  The victim tried to run away, but the gunman chased him.  Two more men then confronted him near the back of the house and took his possessions.  The suspects took off in a White Ford Expedition.

Resident Shirley Clark said she saw a white van driving up and down her street that officials believe may have been the suspects.

"I didn't think anything of it at the time," she said.

The victims were not injured in either robbery.

If you have any information about these robberies, you're asked to call Collierville Crime Stoppers at 901-457-CASH.
