UPDATE 10 P.M. APRIL 17: 13 Action News has obtained surveillance video of one of the armed robberies in Henderson early Sunday morning.

"These are serious armed robbers," said 13 Action News Crime and Safety Expert, retired Las Vegas police Lt. Randy Sutton.

The camera captures three suspects enter the business. The men have hats and hoods on their heads. Their faces are covered with bandannas. 

"I don't see any signs of nervousness," Sutton said. "... That could mean that they're a robbery team from out of town."

Henderson police tell 13 Action News the six robberies happened within a span of an hour and a half.  One suspect had a long gun; the other two were armed with pistols.

Right now, Henderson and Las Vegas police are working together to investigating links. It's possible that the same crew is responsible for hits in Las Vegas police's jurisdiction.

If you recognize the men in the surveillance video, you're urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
