On 8/14/18 at approximately 8:05 P.M., two Hispanic males entered a market on the 900 block of Linden Avenue and demanded cash from the store clerk. One of the suspects brandished a firearm at the clerk. The clerk opened the cash register and stepped aside while the other suspect removed the cash from the register. Both suspects fled the area westbound on the 300 block of Armor Avenue towards Olive Avenue.
The firearm and the cash was later recovered in the backyard of a nearby residence. Officers later contacted Jorge Barajas (21 yo, unemployed from Pittsburg), Jorge Lara (21yo, unemployed from Bakersfield), and Jeffry Lopez after they were observed in the immediate area where the firearm and cash were originally discarded. Barajas and Lara were wearing clothing that matched the description provided by the clerk and an independent witness. Barajas and Lara were positively identified by one of the witnesses. Barajas, Lara, and Lopez were placed under arrest for conspiracy and robbery.
