On June 17, 2022, members of the Mesa Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit in conjunction with members of the Arizona WANTED Task Force arrested 49-year-old Brandie Walker and her boyfriend, 48-year-old Johnathan Roy, for three counts of Armed Robbery after they robbed three separate Circle K convenient stores with a weapon.

The crime spree started on May 14, 2022, around 9:00 p.m., when a woman put on a black wig and entered the Circle K located at 2005 W. Broadway Mesa, AZ with a handgun. The victim told Mesa Police Officers that the woman demanded money from the cash register while displaying a gun. After providing money to the woman, the victim jumped over the counter and disarmed her. The woman ran from the store, leaving her loaded handgun in the hands of the victim, who then gave it to police.

On May 19, 2022, at 4:45 a.m., officers were sent to another armed robbery at a Circle K located at 1959 S. Greenfield. The victim told officers that a man wearing a gray wig came into the store with a handgun and demanded money from the cash register. The man had a distinct tattoo on his right arm and wore easily recognizable clothing.

The third and final armed robbery occurred on June 12, 2022, just after 1:00 a.m. The Circle K at 1557 S. Val Vista was robbed by a woman wearing a brown wig armed with a handgun. This time, the woman left the scene in a vehicle driven by a man. Officers were able to retrieve the vehicle license plate number through Circle K video surveillance.

The Arizona WANTED Task Force located the vehicle at a hotel near Country Club Dr/ Hampton and eventually took Walker and Roy into custody. A search warrant was written and served on the vehicle and hotel room, allowing officers to collect evidence of the crime, to include a black BB gun and a black wig.

Brandie Walker was booked into jail for the following charges and held on a $40,500 bond:
(3 counts) ARS 13-1904A2; Armed Robbery, a class 2 felony
