Arvada police have arrested two suspects for their possible involvement in the Burger King robbery/homicide occurring on Sunday, July 15, 2007.

Detectives developed information during the course of the investigation that led to two men (one juvenile, one adult) for their roles in the crime.

It was learned the two suspects were traveling on a Greyhound Bus en route to Florida. Arvada police officers coordinated with members of the Savannah (Georgia) Police Department to contact the suspects during a scheduled bus stop. The two suspects were taken into custody (without incident) just after 10:30 p.m. MST on Monday, July 16.
