CAPTAIN RICHARD CORREIAâ€™S MESSAGE
In the last newsletter I mentioned that Richmond Station Officers arrested six individuals in connection with three different robberies. One of the robberies involved suspects shooting a gun at the victim and the other two were â€œstrong-armâ€ robberies.
All three of the suspects in the armed robbery have been formally charged by the District Attorney. Two remain in custody with bail for one set at $1,000,000 and the other at $150,000. The third suspect was charged and released after posting bail of $122,109.
In the strong arm robbery that occurred 17th Avenue and Clement on December 15, 2009, a juvenile suspect remains in custody at the Youth Guidance Center. The adult arrested in that incident was not charged as the victim was not able to make a positive identification. The inability to make identification is not uncommon, even when the victim gets a good look at the suspect. A victimâ€™s emotional stress can be overwhelming, and items such as license plates and particulars about clothing are often quickly forgotten. Also, suspect do what they can to avoid identification, such as in this case they grabbed the victim from behind.
The sixteen year old suspect arrested for the strong arm robbery at 30th and Clement on December 15, 2009 was charged and released to relatives on December 22, 2009.
