Four arrested in connection with Livermore armed robbery

LPD: People who robbed local T-Mobile store tied to Fresno gang

Four suspects were arrested Thursday in Livermore in connection with the armed robbery of a T-Mobile store.

The identities of the suspects have not been released.

On Thursday at 1:10 p.m., three suspects wearing masks walked into the T-Mobile store at 4516 Las Positas Road, according to the Livermore Police Department.

One of the suspects simulated having a gun.

One of the two employees inside the store at the time of the robbery was able to run out of the store and notify a passerby of the robbery, police said.

The suspects then left the store and fled the area in a white Jeep Cherokee driven by a fourth person.

A responding officer located the fleeing vehicle and pursued it to a dead-end on Old First Street, where the three passengers fled the vehicle.

Police were able to take the driver into custody at the vehicle, and the three suspects who fled were detained following a search.

Police said Thursday the identities of the suspects is pending, and the suspects are believed to be gang members from Fresno.

Time to put stricter penalties for these low-life criminals. If the criminals are under age, post a photo of the criminals along with the photos of the parents/guardian for shaming.

Deport them, citizens or not.

....but clearly they were having a mental break, shooting with a fake gun is a dead give away.

Anyone with the potential to be summoned on a criminal jury, or has a desire to serve on a criminal jury, should not be commenting on pending criminal cases be it anonymously or otherwise. The question will be asked of all potential jurors in the questionnaire, if juror ever commented regarding pending criminal cases.

“Gang members from Fresno “? You would think there would be multiple T-Mobile storefronts a lot closer to “ home”!! I say if you simulate a gun whether it’s fake or not then maybe you should be taken down with a real gun before an law abiding citizen gets hurt. Lock them up
