3 suspects detained on robbery charges in California

Sources indicate that three California men were taken into custody and two more were at large following two robberies that occurred on Dec. 19 in Fresno. The first robbery happened shortly before 6 p.m. and allegedly involved a gun. The second occurred shortly after 7 p.m. Both robberies were reported to police, and the description of the individuals involved was similar in both incidents.

An officer who took the second report later saw individuals who fit the description of those suspected of the robberies. The officer reportedly pulled into the parking lot of the liquor store where he saw the individuals, and they attempted to flee the scene. However, they were caught, and police alleged that they also found a handgun nearby that may have been used in the first robbery.

Two of the individuals detained are adult Fresno residents, and one is a juvenile. Charges against the three include possession of a stolen concealed firearm, conspiracy to commit robbery, alleged robbery and suspicion of robbery. According to police, they are also suspected of involvement in a third robbery that happened near the first two.

Those convicted of violent crimes, such as armed robbery, face serious penalties, including an extensive period of incarceration. An individual who is involved in a case similar to this one may wish to consult an attorney. Defense may be handled differently based on whether an individual is an adult or a juvenile. For example, a juvenile may face lighter penalties, or the charges might be removed from their record once they reach the age of 18. Individuals in such a case might choose to plead innocent and challenge eyewitness identification, which may not be accurate.
