Olive and Cedar Avenues
FRESNO – A third suspect was arrested on Saturday for his alleged involvement in a taco truck robbery in central Fresno.
The incident happened on January 23 near Cedar and Olive avenues. Two suspects, one of whom was carrying a gun, stole a generator from the taco truck.
One of the men escaped in a waiting vehicle, while the other fled on foot. The suspect who ran away, identified by police as Larry Bertone, was followed by a customer of the taco truck. The woman caught up to him and punched the suspect repeatedly in the face, prompting the suspect to start slashing at her with a knife before continuing to run away, authorities said.
Bertone was arrested later that day. Officers also caught up to the escape vehicle, which was allegedly being driven by Ronald Richardson. Officers were able to arrest Richardson, but the other suspect in the car – identified as Robert “Sean” Burrough – was able to run away and avoid arrest.
However, police were able to take him into custody on Saturday. Officers attempted to contact him near Chestnut and Butler avenues, but Burrough fled and hid in the neighborhood for hours before officers found him hiding behind a washer and dryer in a garage he had broken into, authorities said.
Bertone and Burrough were also suspects in a previous residential burglary.
Burrough is being held on suspicion of attempted robbery and theft, while Bertone is being held on suspicion of attempted robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
All three suspects were identified as Fresneck gang members, authorities said.
