BURBANK (CNS) - Two men have been arrested for allegedly committing an armed robbery of a Burbank doughnut shop, and investigators believe they might be responsible for other crimes, authorities said Tuesday.

The robbery happened on Dec. 9 around 4:10 a.m. at Donut Prince located at 1721 W. Olive Ave., according to the Burbank Police Department.

The clerk told officers that two men entered the store and one pointed a gun at him while demanding money. The clerk complied with the suspect's demands and handed over money from the cash register.

The clerk provided officers with a description of the suspects, associated vehicle and surveillance video of the robbery. Officers searched for the suspects, but were not able to locate them.

At about 2 p.m. Thursday, Burbank police located the suspects and their vehicle in Moreno Valley, and investigators stopped and detained the two suspects. After a search of the vehicle, authorities allegedly found evidence linking them to the robbery at Donut Prince plus six catalytic converters suspected of being stolen. Authorities also found that the vehicle was reported stolen, police said.

Detectives believe that the same suspects are responsible for additional crimes in surrounding cities.

The suspects were identified as 27-year-old Moreno Valley residents Rashawn Taylor and Bernard Perry. Both were arrested on suspicion of robbery, as well as other felonies and were remanded to the custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
