Sheriff Colonel David Hines said, "I'm exceptionally proud that we were able to quickly solve these robberies and prevent anyone else from being victimized. I'm also very appreciative of the remarkable efforts of those who devoted themselves to solving these crimes. I would also like to extend by sincere appreciation for the media coverage afforded to these incidents and the public's help, which directly assisted us in furthering this investigation."
