On the evening of April 22, an armed robbery occurred in the 1700 block of Oak Avenue.
Responding officers discovered that the suspects entered a home forcefully and committed the robbery.
The male victim answered the door and the suspects pushed their way in, deploying a Taser on the victim.
The suspects then zip-tied the victim’s hands and looked for the female victim inside.
The female was hit in her head with a handgun. Then the trio took a large safe, a purse and watches.
The male victim was treated on scene and the female victim was taken to the hospital to close a forehead laceration.
Detectives discovered “several critical pieces of evidence” at the scene which led them to conduct surveillance on a suspect’s residence.
After several weeks, detectives obtained search warrants for all of the suspects.
On August 4th, 3 of the 4 suspects were arrested – 32-year-old Joshua Plamcartte, 19-year-old Edgar Adrian Romo and 30-year-old Edgar Flores Villesenor.
The seizure after the search warrant included an AR-15 rifle, a 9mm pistol, a Colt .45 semi0-automatic pistol, Glock gun parts, ammunition, body armor and cash linking them to the crime.
