SALINAS — An increased police presence as a precaution for the holiday season put two armed robbery suspects behind bars after an incident shortly before midnight on New Year’s Eve.

Police arrested 18-year-old Trampas Carter and 19-year-old Jordan Duerloo, both of Salinas, at the intersection of North Main and East Curtis.

That night, an unidentified 21-year-old male was waiting to cross the street when two suspects approached and accosted him, demanding his necklace. One of the suspects — later identified as Duerloo — pulled a gun from his waistband and forcefully grabbed the necklace.

What the two suspects seemed to have forgotten in the moment was that they were on a busy street. A Salinas Police officer happened to be driving by and the victim flagged him down. After taking down his report, the officer called for additional units to canvas the area.

The suspects’ vehicle was located within minutes and a high-risk stop was conducted. Both were arrested and positively identified by the victim. They were booked into the Monterey County.
