CONCORD — A former security guard and another man suspected of being in cahoots have been arrested for an armed robbery. They allegedly robbed the Round 1 bowling and amusement center at Sun Valley Mall.

U.S. Marshals and San Francisco police assisted Concord police in apprehending them. Both suspects remain in custody at the Martinez Detention Facility. They were already on parole for prior convictions and neither is bondable.

Gary Dillahunty, 43, was on duty working security during the May 12th robbery. Dillahunty allegedly conspired with Vincent Timmons, 37, and allowed him inside through an employee entrance.

Two masked men forced two employees at gunpoint inside a locked cash room. They tied the employees’ hands behind their backs and then stole the cash.

One employee managed to get free and phoned the police, but both thieves were gone when responding officers arrived.
Concord police launched a two-month investigation to identify, locate and apprehend both suspects. U.S. Marshals and the San Francisco Police Department assisted them.

On July 23, Dillahunty was arrested at his Vacaville residence. Dillahunty faces charges for robbery and kidnapping. He was already on parole for assault with a deadly weapon.

Timmons was arrested a few days earlier in San Francisco, and he was already on parole for a prior kidnapping conviction. His latest charges are kidnapping, robbery, and possession of a firearm and an assault weapon. In addition, he faces charges for possession of narcotics for sale.
