[UPDATE] Sheriff’s Department Captures Two Suspects in Marijuana Armed Robbery With Help of Tips From Burr Valley Residents
“They were definitely the guys we were looking for,” Fridley said. “They were from Fresno as were the others [arrested earlier today.]…They had evidence on them that linked them to this crime.”
No weapons were found with the two men, Fridley said.
The two are believed to have been involved in an armed robbery of a grower. They allegedly fled along with four others in an SUV pulling a trailer as the grower chased them. A construction crew along Hwy 36 was able to stop their vehicle and detain four but two men fled and were sought by law enforcement.
Fridley said that he was worried about the people where the incident began. He hopes there was no one injured or possibly dead back where the alleged armed robbery occurred. “If we could only find out…if they are okay,” he said.
