Anchorage police have named the man arrested in Turnagain Tuesday evening after an armed robbery at a smoke shop, with two more people still sought in the case after two vehicles were reportedly used in their getaway.
Kevin Fisher, 24, is charged with first-degree robbery as well as third-degree theft and assault, APD spokesman MJ Thim said in a statement Wednesday morning. He and the two other suspects -- described only as a man and a woman -- had robbed the Smoker's Choice store on the 3600 block of Minnesota Drive at about 6 p.m. They left in a white Chevrolet Impala, abandoning it near 36th Avenue and Iowa Street in favor of a blue 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada -- which also wasn't driven far.
"They crashed into a tree in the area of 35th Avenue and Vintage Circle and fled on foot," Thim wrote.
