Andre Terial Love
VENTURA COUNTY — As if the service in some restaurants wasn’t bad enough, multiple eateries throughout Ventura County have been the recent scenes of armed robberies which appear to have mimicked the opening scenes of an iconic film renowned for its violent depiction of criminals of a complex criminal character portrayed by actor Samuel Jackson in “Pulp Fiction.”
According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Alan Hartkop, the suspect in as many as three crimes perpetrated throughout the county was identified “through the suspect’s description and the method of operation in which the crimes were committed.”
Pursuant to an investigation that began immediately after the July 12, 2015 armed takeover and robbery in the City of Thousand Oaks, Los Angeles resident Andre Terial Love, 37, was identified as the individual who “used a semi-automatic handgun to instill fear” into the hearts and minds of restaurant patrons as he relieved them of their cash and valuables.
The investigation over the better part of a year ultimately eliminated all other potential suspects and gave rise to a warrant for Love’s arrest.
That arrest warrant was served upon Love at his place of employment on the morning of June 9th, where additional evidence of three robberies was found, further indicating his complicity in the crimes under investigation.
He was taken into custody and transported to Ventura County Jail, where he was booked on multiple charges of second-degree armed robbery with his bail set at $1,000,000.
