OILDALE — Bridget Daniels can finally move on after police arrested her son’s killer.
It took Bakersfield police a little over a week, but the hunt for one of two suspects wanted in connection with a double homicide that occurred on July 17, inside the First Reliable medical marijuana collective on Chester Avenue in Oildale, ended on July 26, when police arrested 32-year-old Aaron Patrick Burris.
Burris and his 16-year-old accomplice Miracle Jackson allegedly robbed the collective, killing owner Tony Conrad Sherman (55) of Los Angeles, and unarmed security guard Devin Daniels (23) of Bakersfield.
After identifying the pair, police investigators tracked Burris to an apartment on Wainwright Drive, where he surrendered without incident at about 5 p.m. on Friday.
“The suspect surrendered to officers without incident,” said Sgt. Jason Matson of the Bakersfield Police Department. “There was no need for the SWAT team in this case.”
Burris is accused of first degree murder, second degree robbery, and participation in a street gang. He was booked into the Kern County Sheriff’s Central Receiving Facility where he is being held on $2,060,000 bail.
Miracle Jackson is still at large.
Also the same night, officers arrested Robert Thrower (30), Jamie Wandick (25), Darnell Warren (24), Joevaughn Spencer (23), and Danny Webster (25) on suspicion of being accessories and participation in a criminal street gang.
Police are asking anyone with information on this case to contact the department at (661) 327-7111, Detective Cox at (661) 326-3514, or Secret Witness at (661) 322-4040.
