Authorities say a group of teens accused of robbing a person at gunpoint in Casa Grande is also linked to two other recent incidents. 

On Friday afternoon, officers responded to 10th Street and Olive Avenue after receiving reports of a robbery.

When officers arrived at the scene, the victim said the suspects were in a black sedan and fled the area immediately after the robbery, police said. The victim was not injured during the incident.

Soon after, officers were able to locate the car and found four teens inside, officials said. The teens were 14, 14, 15 and 16 years old.

It's believed the vehicle the teens were in was stolen, police said. Officers found an airsoft rifle, a handgun and ammunition in the car. 

During the investigation, officers were able to link the group to other robberies in the area.

They all face multiple charges including robbery, vehicle theft and theft.

Authorities are now asking the public to call them if they've seen any suspicious activity over the past few weeks that may be linked to the suspects. Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Wilson at 520-421-8711 extension 6298.
