San Marcos, CA–Three juveniles robbed nine different individuals at gunpoint at various locations Sunday afternoon in San Marcos, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said.
The crimes were committed over a period of about two and a half hours. The victims all had similar descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle, a Toyota Tacoma truck.
Around 2 p.m., shortly after the last robbery was committed, deputies located the suspect vehicle driving down Knoll Road. A traffic stop was conducted and the juveniles, one age 15, and two age 16 were detained. A loaded, un-serialized handgun was located in the truck. The three juveniles were identified as having committed the prior robberies. The truck the juveniles were driving in was found to have been stolen the previous evening from a victim in Vista.
They were arrested for multiple counts of robbery, possession of a stolen vehicle, and gun-related charges. They were booked into Juvenile Hall.
No victims were injured during the robberies and no suspects are believed to be outstanding.
