The Broward Sheriff's Office on Thursday announced the arrest of a couple who detectives say went on a crime spree that began with threatening to set a Denny's employee on fire with a squirt bottle full of gasoline.
Robert Golden, 27, and Tiffany Sierputowski, 20, were arrested early Thursday morning in Pembroke Pines. According to BSO, tips rolled in after surveillance videos and pictures of the young couple appeared in local media Wednesday.
The couple faces several charges, including robbery with a weapon.
Detectives said the couple's crime spree began Jan. 11 when they entered an Oakland Park Denny's and threatened to set an employee on fire. The couple managed to leave with money. That same day they hit a Denny's in Hallandale Beach. There they gave employees a handwritten note asking for money and saying they had gas bombs and guns.

Then on Jan. 12, the couple was caught on surveillance video entering a 7-Eleven in Dania Beach, where the woman stole several items.
Golden, who remained in jail with no bond, has 14 prior arrests including charges of DUI, grand theft and elderly exploitation.
Sierputowski has no prior arrests in Broward County, according to court records.
