SAN LEANDRO — A 25-year-old repeat offender and three teenagers were recently arrested for planning a laptop computer robbery. The mastermind has a criminal history, convictions and 14 arrests on his record.
The four individuals allegedly participated in robbing a victim at a coffee shop on September 30. Reports started coming in at 1:51 p.m. about the incident at the Starbucks located at 1057 MacArthur Boulevard.
After the robbery, the victim and witnesses chased after the car, which crashed. All four suspects fled on foot. Two female minors, aged 16 and 17, were quickly detained, arrested and booked into juvenile hall.
18-year-old Kevin A. Perry led police on a chase through backyards and into San Leandro Creek, while being followed by a drone. He was arrested at 3 p.m. inside a home located on the 800 block of Cary Drive.
He remains in custody at Santa Rita Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond, facing a second-degree robbery charge.
Authorities later identified 25-year-old Labari D. Perry as the suspect who snatched the laptop computer. Police say he is not related to Kevin Perry.
Labari Perry was arrested on October 1 at 2:40 p.m., on the 5900 block of Fortune Avenue in Oakland. He remains in custody at Santa Rita Jail and he is ineligible for release on bond.
His charges include second-degree robbery. In addition, he faces five special allegations involving prior batteries, robberies and dissuading witnesses.
