Three Pairs of Stolen Sneakers Lead Suspects to Jail

NEWARK –Three men have been arrested on numerous charges related to the March 2 robbery of a shoe store located at Newpark Mall, where a fake gun was used to startle employees and steal three pairs of sneakers.

Officers responded to a report of an armed robbery of the Shoe Palace at 1074 Newpark Mall, and a bystander provided a partial description of the getaway car’s license plate, which helped officers from Newark and Fremont locate the suspects within three hours.

Police converged on a vehicle and stopped the suspects at the intersection of Grimmer Boulevard and Yellowstone Drive in Fremont, where officers detained and questioned four individuals, before arresting three men and releasing a fourth person.

While investigating, officers determined one of the suspects was carrying a realistic-looking replica gun tucked in his waistband, and officers also recovered the stolen sneakers.

The suspects — 22-year-old Marcos Patino Jr., 23-year-old Ryan J. Horrigan and 24-year-old Anthony J. Lopez, all from Fremont — are in custody at Santa Rita Jail. Bond was set at $150,000 each for Patino and Horrigan, and $165,000 for Lopez.

Patino is charged with second degree robbery, dissuading a witness by force or threat, resisting an officer, hit and run property damage, and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Horrigan is charged with second degree robbery, dissuading a witness by force or threat, and manufacturing phencyclidine.

Lopez is charged with second degree robbery, dissuading a witness by force or threat, and brandishing a replica gun.

A court hearing is scheduled for March 9 at the Hayward Hall of Justice.
