Three men suspected in a string of armed robberies across Pierce County were ordered held until Thursday while authorities continue investigating their connection to more than six holdups.
Bail will be set at their first court appearance in Pierce County Superior Court this afternoon.
Deputies arrested them early Monday morning during a traffic stop in South Hill.
Among other crimes, they are accused of robbing 7-11 convenience stores in Tacoma and South Hill, Bikini Bottoms Espresso near South Hill and a Walgreens in Spanaway.
One of the men has an unrelated third-degree assault charge for allegedly shooting a BB gun at a man. Another has several unrelated charges, including burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, unlawful possession of a controlled substance and attempted burglary.
