Edward Rey, Jr.
SAN BERNARDINO – A robber came into the Latino Cellular store without wearing a mask and demanded cell phones and money.
In addition, he brandished a large chrome revolver, which helped persuade the clerk to comply.
The robber fled the store on foot, but soon jumped into a compact gray 4-door vehicle being driven by an unknown Hispanic female.
The investigation began. The robber’s distinctive facial tattoos, as well as his choice not to cover his face, perhaps led to his arrest just days later.
39-year-old Edward Rey Jr. was arrested for armed robbery, assault with a firearm, commercial burglary, and conspiracy. He has a long criminal history with prior violent felonies and prison terms.
