Two men from Hialeah went on a late-night robbing spree on South Beach, pulling off three robberies before ending up in Miami Beach police custody.

Jose Suero, 18, and Henry Rodriguez, 19, followed the same rob-rinse-repeat script, according to their arrest affidavit: Suero would stop the silver Nissan Altima, jump out to put a pistol on someone, steal some personal property, and then leave.

They made their first stop near Park Avenue and 19th Street at 1:37 a.m. Then they drove down to Lincoln Road and Drexel Avenue for a 2:25 a.m. hit. At 2:35 a.m. they hit Sixth Street and Jefferson Avenue.

Five minutes after the two completed their hat trick of robberies, Miami Beach police say, patrol units and robbery detectives arrested them at Alton Road and 17th Street. Suero and Rodriguez allegedly admitted the crimes and method after being read their Miranda rights and the stolen goods were returned to the victims.

Rodriguez still has a month and a half left of probation from a conviction for car burglary and grand theft last year.

Suero has a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge from May making its way through the court system.

An unrelated robbery occurred Thursday night, at Third Street and Meridian, around 3:10 a.m. The assault and robbery sent the victims to Mount Sinai Hospital for non-life threatening injuries, police said.
