On December 23, 2015, at 4:24 AM, two male suspects entered the Shell Gas Station, located in the100 block of W. Ventura Road in Camarillo. 


The masked suspects approached the clerk, brandished a knife and demanded money.  The clerk complied with the robbers' demands and handed over the money.   After the suspects obtained the money, they fled on foot toward the Target shopping center.  The clerk called 911 and deputies responded. The clerk was not injured during this crime. Several marked police units checked the area and were not able to locate the suspects.


Camarillo detectives obtained video footage of the robbery and released it to the public.  Detectives received several tips over the next few days, identifying the possible suspects.


On December 29, 2015 detectives served search warrants in the 1000 block of Temple Avenue and the 100 block of Camino Valverde in Camarillo.  Detectives located evidence implicating a male juvenile's involvement in the robbery.  The juvenile was arrested and lodged into Juvenile Hall for armed robbery.  Detectives are still gathering evidence regarding the second suspect.


The information from the public was instrumental in making this arrest and solving a robbery that may have gone unsolved.  When the public gets involved to work with law enforcement, it makes the community a safer place for all of us to live.
