Default Grocery Robbers of Oregon & Washington State (1987-1992)

Does anybody know if the robbers who amassed over $1.5 million by robbing grocery stores in Oregon and Washington in the late 80s/early 90s were caught, or struck again after the airing on Unsolved Mysteries?

I don't know, but I'd be damn curious to find out. I think this was one of those segments that never made it to Lifetime for some reason.

I'm assuming there's still no new information here. I can't believe they hit ALL those stores in such a short period of time without being caught--I mean, that was easily over 30 stores over a relatively small area. The descriptions of the two were very detailed. It's just crazy.

Slightly OT, but does anyone know if those so-called pizza bandits were ever caught as well?

I'm curious about updates on this one as well. This segment totally scares the crap out of me every time I watch it.

For sure. My first semester of college I worked as a grocery store cashier and was often assigned the last shift since most of the other cashiers were underage and couldn't sell alcohol or tobacco (definitely some of the most-purchased items on that shift). I remember thinking how desolate and rather unsecure the store seemed at 10:30 at night.

I'm pretty sure they were. It was the work of a local gang, I don't remember a lot of the details sorry, but i'm pretty sure they case is solved. I even saw it on one of the Farina episodes.

Oh, I wasn't aware this segment made it to the Farina incarnation. I remember how the group operated in "rotating teams of two", and that there seemed to be something like six or seven of these guys. It seems a group of that size might be caught more quickly than just two people.

I'd be interested in this too! Funny how Washington State has so many stories like this; the Green River Killer, Mary Kay Letournau, etc.....

Two men rob grocery stores by posing as customers and entering the stores at or around closing time. The first store they hit was in a small town in Oregon in 1987 and they subsequently hit more throughout Oregon and Washington in coming years. The robbers had a kind of good cop-bad cop style in which one would be aggressive and demanding and the other was sort of reassuring and compassionate (RS mentioned that the latter was known to take hamburger buns and put them under people's heads as they laid at gunpoint on the store floor). There were composites--very detailed composites--shown at the end.

"and the other was sort of reassuring and compassionate (RS mentioned that the latter was known to take hamburger buns and put them under people's heads as they laid at gunpoint on the store floor)."

Lol, that's kinda weird (I haven't seen it, either). I can imagine this guy talking to the customers in a soft, sympathetic voice: "It's gonna be okay, everyone.....we're just going to take all of the cash we can find.....you're going to be okay....just relax. We'll be gone a in a minute and you can get back to doing what you were doing, okay?"

In the reenactment he doesn't say anything to them, just puts the hamburger buns under their heads while RS narrates about him being nice. It wouldn't have made me feel much better with the gun still there!
