Arrests were made in connection with an armed robbery and a burglary in progress in Oakland this week, police said today. Officers arrested a suspect in connection with an armed robbery Wednesday night around 10:30 p.m., after a citizen notified them that a man was seen allegedly selling stolen items on the 2400 block of Foothill Boulevard, according to police.
Police recovered some items stolen in a robbery that had occurred earlier that day, and also the knife they believe was used in the robberies. One suspect was also taken into custody Thursday shortly before noon when police were called to the 2300 block of 106th Avenue on a report of a burglary in progress, police said.
Officers found several suspects still inside attempting to flee. A perimeter was set up with the help of the California Highway Patrol, and one suspect, an Oakland resident, was taken into custody on suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property. Police were able to recover some of the stolen items.
Anyone with information on these cases is asked to call Oakland police at (510) 238-3326 or (510) 238-3951.
