MILWAUKEE - Police are offering a $5,000 reward for information into two separate armed robberies at Advanced Auto Parts stores last month.

Masked suspects stormed a store April 17th on Teutonia Avenue and then again a week later at another location on North Avenue.
 
They were armed with guns and demanded cash from terrified employees.
 
"Milwaukee Police Department and ATF are concerned that this could escalate and possibly turn into a more dangerous situation where shots could be fired." said ATF Special Agent Robert Schmidt.
 
He added, they believe the three suspects may be involved with other crimes.
 
The company said they are cooperating with police and are offering counseling to workers at the two locations that were robbed.
 
Anyone with information should call police.
