Trio Robs Gun Store With Fake Gun
Two teenagers, and a 20-year-old man are accused of robbing a gun store in El, Cajon, Calif. last week, with a toy gun. Police say the three masked suspects hit up Hiram’s Guns & Spirits at around 2:15 p.m.
One member of the trio held the store employee at “gunpoint,” while the other two broke a glass display case and scooped out several handguns. No one was hurt in the incident.
The suspects fled the scene in a red 1998 Chevrolet Lumina, according to the store employee. Authorities tried to pull them over a little while later but the driver hit a turn and tried to get away. The vehicle was later blocked by several cop cars on a dead end street.
All three suspects were arrested and face felony charges for armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
