On July 12, 2013, at approximately 1230 hours, an unknown adult male and adult female entered the Boost Mobile store located at 353 Arneill Road in the city of Camarillo. Once there were no other customers inside the store, the suspects conversed with the sole female employee and inquired about merchandise that was kept in a storage room. When the employee entered the storage room to retrieve the requested merchandise, the male suspect removed a knife from his pocket and followed the employee into the room. At knife-point, the male suspect forced the female employee to the ground and bound her hands and feet together.

Meanwhile, the female suspect remained on the showroom floor and acted as a look-out. When the male suspect emerged from the storage room, both suspects proceeded to steal merchandise from the showroom and cash from the cash register. During this time, the male suspect also stole the employee's vehicle keys enabling both suspects to flee the area in the employee's vehicle, which was later found abandoned on Dumetz Street in Camarillo.

On July 27, 2013, Camarillo patrol deputies detained two subjects identified as Pedro Marcilino Hernandez and Yadira Garcia-Hernandez. The deputies soon determined the subjects were wanted out of Arizona for felony warrants and questioning in a murder investigation. As a result, both subjects were arrested and booked at the Ventura County Sheriff's Pre-trial Detention Facility to await extradition.

Investigators began comparing the booking photographs of these subjects with security surveillance footage recorded inside the Boost Mobile store. It was soon determined that Pedro and Yadira Hernandez were responsible for this crime. Therefore, while still in custody on the unrelated Arizona charges, Major Crimes Investigators arrested Pedro Marcilino Hernandez and Yadira Garcia-Hernandez for the following charges: Armed robbery, conspiracy to commit a crime, false imprisonment, and the unlawful taking and / or driving of a vehicle.   

Anyone with information regarding the crimes committed on July 12, 2013, at Boost Mobile, is encouraged to contact Detective Sergeant John J. Gleason at (805) 384-4727. If you wish to remain anonymous, Ventura County Crime Stoppers will pay up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and criminal complaint against persons responsible for crimes such as this one. The caller may remain anonymous and the call is not recorded. The number for Crime Stoppers is 800-222-TIPS (8477).
