On 6-23-2011 in the early morning hours two separate armed robberies had occurred. The first one was in the 1500 Block of Graves Avenue. The victim was approached from behind and the suspect demanded all of their property. The suspect was possibly in possession of a shotgun. The second robbery occurred in the 1900 Block of North “C” street. In this incident the suspect was also possibly in possession of a shotgun.

During the investigation the suspect descriptions were similar. It is unknown if they were committed by the same suspect. The first robbery was reported shortly after the incident however the second robbery victim waited a significant amount of time before reporting the crime.

The public is reminded to always be aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious behavior or activities to the police as soon as possible. Delays in reporting incidents greatly reduce the chances that a suspect will be located fleeing the scene.

If you have any additional information regarding these incidents or any other robberies, please contact Detective Steven Funk or you may also leave a message on the Violent Crimes Hotline at (805) 982-7070. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
