Two men remained behind bars Friday in connection with a string of business robberies throughout the L.A. area. Los Angeles police say Angelo Wingo, 18, and Devon Glover, 21, were arrested Wednesday in South Los Angeles, after officers identified their blue BMW as the getaway vehicle. Officers pulled over the vehicle and took the men into custody.

They were both taken to LAPD's Southwest Division Jail on suspicion of robbery and are being held in lieu of $200,000 bail.

Police say the suspects hit at least six stores since December 2009. Detectives say the suspects entered the stores and walked around posing as customers. The next day, they returned and ordered the employees to a back room, tied them up and demanded access to the safe. The suspects then drove off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Detectives believe the men, Wingo and Glover, are part of a large robbery ring and are asking for the public's help in recognizing them, to see if they are behind any other reported robberies.

Anyone with information is urged to call Wilshire robbery detectives at (213) 473-0514 or (213) 922-8205.

Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
