Antioch Robbery

The Antioch Police Department reported this week that within 10-minutes, they had three armed robberies in residential neighborhoods of Antioch where the victims were all arriving home from work.

According to police, Responding officers quickly linked the three robberies based on time element, along with the matching suspect and getaway vehicle descriptions. The suspects were reportedly armed with a handgun and rifle at the time of the robberies.

Later that evening, Officer Desiderio located a matching vehicle and conducted an enforcement stop. A search of the vehicle revealed stolen property from each of the three robberies. The five occupants of the vehicle were arrested, and two of the five provided false identification to officers. The true identities of these two were learned and they were found to have outstanding warrants for their arrest.

All five were booked at the County Jail in Martinez. Antioch Police did not release the names of the suspects or any other information.

Antioch Police said Friday, of the five males arrested, three were 19 years-old, one was 20-years-old, and one was 23 years-old. All five males were from Antioch and Brentwood. No other information was released.

Let’s hope they don’t get out. They already have warrants out for their arrest and their response is to that is to commit more crimes. Keep them locked up and let’s see them try preying on people like them.
