Armed robbery is a serious crime that poses very harsh penalties. As a felony in Arizona, armed robbery is characterized by the use of a weapon during the commission of a robbery. Although cases can vary, armed robbery often involves the use of force - and sometimes injuries to victims. It may also take place in retain establishments, banks, stores, muggings, or home invasions.
