Henderson police, in collaboration with Metropolitan Police Department, arrested three suspects Friday on suspicion of multiple armed robberies of cellphone stores throughout the valley.

Rushard Burton, 23, was arrested without incident and taken to Henderson Detention Center. Kejon Ward, 23, and Erica Caldwell, 22, were arrested without incident by Metro and taken to Clark County Detention Center.

During the five robberies, the suspects displayed handguns and demanded store employees move to the back of the store, where they were told to lay face down on the floor, Henderson police spokesman Scott Williams. The suspects fled after taking cash and multiple cellphones, Williams added.

The Henderson stores involved include a Sprint at 1022 W. Sunset Road on April 28, and the Verizon store at 9985 S. Eastern Ave. on May 26.

A Sprint store in the 3000 block of West Craig Road in North Las Vegas, another Sprint store in the 7300 block of South Rainbow Boulevard and an AT&T store in the 7000 block of North Durango Drive were also involved.

No one was injured during the robberies, police said.
