The first occurred at 10:53 p.m. Saturday in the 2700 block of B street involving four male juveniles between ages 15 and 17, who entered Golden Hill Liquor, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.
Two were armed with handguns and two were not, he said. The two with handguns ordered the employee to open the register and took cash and bottles of Hennessey Cognac. They fled in a dark-colored sedan.
The second occurred at 11:37 p.m. Saturday in the 2600 block of Mission Village drive, Mr. Buttle said.
Three male suspects entered the store and two pointed guns at the employee, then one removed cash from the register while the others took liquor and other merchandise. They fled on foot.
The third occurred at 11:55 p.m. Saturday in the 8600 block of Aero Drive, Mr. Buttle said. One suspect pointed a handgun at the clerk and took money from the register while the other two took cigarettes and other items before fleeing on foot.
The fourth was at 12:02 a.m. Sunday in the 8800 block of Clairemont Mesa Boulevard, he said. The suspect armed with a handgun walked up to the counter and demanded cash from the register. This time the three drove away westbound on Clairemont Mesa Boulevard in a dark colored vehicle.
