CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Two suspects in a string of robberies have been arrested by Chattanooga police.

Police arrested:

  • Christopher Suttles, 20
    • 11/13/2015 - Aggravated Robbery, 2001 E. Main St.
    • 12/03/2015 - Aggravated Robbery, 1601 E. 19th St.
    • 12/08/2015 - Robbery, 2020 Gunbarrel Rd.
  • Courtney Puckett, 22
    • 11/14/2015 - Robbery, 2317 Gifford St.

The robberies took place between November 13th through December 8th. 

Police say the suspects can be linked to four separate robbery and aggravated robbery cases, but additional cases may be cleared as the investigation continues.

Robbery Investigators responded to a robbery at 2020 Gunbarrel Road, where the victim was able to take a picture of the suspect’s vehicle, a blue Chevrolet Trailblazer.

Police shared the vehicle information with other police agencies in the surrounding area, and was later found in the Brainerd area. 

The suspects were questioned about the robbery, and police say additional physical evidence linked this vehicle and occupants to other similar incidents.

”These officers focused on these suspects and successfully cleared multiple criminal acts," said Chief of Police Fred Fletcher. "There is no doubt in my mind these criminals would have continued this brazen and reckless behavior. This is a time of year when our citizens are most vulnerable to robbery and burglary, these arrests make our streets safer."

Investigators with the Chattanooga Police Department also believe these individuals are connected to several purse snatchings in the East Brainerd and Hixson area. 

Investigators are requesting anyone with additional information concerning cases of this nature to please contact police at 423-698-2525.
