At about 9:27 pm Friday night, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported armed robbery that had just occurred at Arco AMPM, 150 East Monte Vista Avenue, Turlock.
There were two suspects who had entered the store and robbed its two clerks, ages 18 and 21 at gunpoint. They then fled the area walking eastbound on East Monte Vista Avenue.
Officers checked the area and even started a canine track, however, were unable to locate the suspects.
Another jurisdiction nearby also had a similar robbery occur an hour prior at an Arco AMPM. They are believed to be related.
This location has been robbed several times this year, however, all the prior times it was by the same suspect. He was arrested.
The investigation remains on-going. Anyone with information that could assist in the investigation is encouraged to call Officer Paul Hernandez at 209-668-1200.
