WANTED Robbery Suspect, ELA Smoke Shop, Maywood Radio Shack, Do you know this suspect?


East Los Angeles Detective Bureau is looking for assistance in identifying a suspect who we believe has committed two robberies.

One robbery was in the East LA unincorporated area at a smoke shop on Whittier Bl. It occurred on Monday, November 19, 2012 about 7:35pm. The suspect pepper sprayed the store owner and fled the location with property he did not pay for.

The second was in the city of Maywood at a Radio Shack on Slauson Av. It occurred on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 about 5:35pm. We believe the same suspect entered the store and asked to see an Apple iPad. When the clerk turned his back the suspect reached over the counter, grabbed the iPad and ran away. The suspect may have fled in a blue pick-up truck.

Description: Hispanic Male / 20's / 5'07" / 180 - 210 lbs / black eyes / brown eyes / goatee and wearing LA Dodgers baseball cap and LA Dodgers sweatshirt / t-shirt
