Second Suspect Nabbed in Adams Street Robbery

Second Suspect Nabbed in Adams Street Robbery

Alameda police arrested a suspect for allegedly committing an armed robbery with another person in January. He is the second suspect arrested for this crime.

Alameda Police Department (APD) announced they made the arrest on March 3. APD investigators were able to obtain an arrest warrant and arrested the second suspect, according to APD reports. The suspect’s identity is being withheld because he is a minor. The case has now been submitted to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for review.

The arrest stems from the armed robbery that took place on Jan. 12 on the 2900 block of Adams Street (“Juvenile Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested,” Feb. 4). The two juveniles are alleged to have brandished a handgun in the direction of two adult males and demanded their property. The report did not say which suspect brandished the handgun.

APD arrested the first suspect on Feb. 2, according to reports. APD was able to locate some of the stolen property prior to the first arrest using tracking data. During the arrest, officers retrieved more than a dozen items of stolen property and ammunition. Investigators learned the first suspect is likely to be involved in other robberies in Oakland and Hayward. APD did not say if the second suspect was also involved those robberies.
