NEWARK — SWAT teams from three counties arrested three suspects for armed robberies committed in the San Francisco Bay Area. Three handguns, one rifle, high-capacity magazines and other ammunition were seized in raids.
Newark police detectives and SWAT teams from Alameda, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties conducted simultaneous law enforcement actions. Multiple agencies from all three counties assisted.
The arrests resulted from an investigation of robberies of convenience stores in Newark, which expanded to other jurisdictions. Williams was arrested October 21 at 6:27 a.m. and Manor was arrested at 6:40 a.m.
Williams remains in custody at Santa Rita Jail in lieu of $105,000 bond, pending a plea hearing on November 5. Manor is also housed at Santa Rita Jail, but no bond has been set for him, pending his November 5 plea hearing.
Charges filed in this case include robbery, possession of stolen property, and various firearms charges. That’s in addition to contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Williams faces 44 separate charges for crimes committed in June, August, and October. Meanwhile, Manor faces 29 separate charges all involving crimes committed in August, and one robbery in June.
Williams has three prior arrests on his record. He was arrested in February and June of this year for vehicle theft, weapons, and other charges. In August 2020, he was arrested for carrying an unregistered loaded firearm.
Manor was previously arrested in February this year, for robbery, weapons, and drug-related charges.
