Two men were arrested on robbery charges today after a man reported being held up at gunpoint at an acquaintance’s home in Pacifica, according to police. The victim contacted police on Wednesday around 1 p.m. to report that he had been robbed while visiting an acquaintance’s home in the Pacific Manor area that day, according to Capt. Joe Spanheimer.
While there, the two men were joined by two other men, at which point the acquaintance allegedly pulled out a semiautomatic handgun and demanded the victim’s money and belongings. Police obtained a search warrant for a suspect’s home and property, and, because a dangerous weapon was involved, called in the SWAT team for assistance in serving the warrant.
A search of the property this morning located two suspects who were positively identified as being involved in the robbery, as well as a handgun similar to the one described as being used in the robbery, Spanheimer said. Jared Lee Laplante, 27, and Trevor Ryan Jodsaas, 26, were both arrested on suspicion of robbery and conspiracy. Laplante was also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
