February 22, 2022 – Ventura County, Ca.
As if life isn’t hard enough when waiting for that local fast-food take-out delivery to show up with our burger-fries-and-a-drink, when the harried delivery guy becomes the victim of a daylight stickup robbery, it can ruin everybody’s day.
That was the likely scenario at the February 20 th lunch hour when, according to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Detective Chris Dyer, a 911 call to the Sheriff’s Communication Center reported the armed robbery “from a food delivery person” that had just taken place on a downtown Camarillo street.
Responding deputies soon made contact with the victim, who “was able to provide a location and suspect description.” As deputies “quickly surrounded the area,” the victim’s report enabled detectives attached to the Camarillo Special Enforcement Detail to “identify the possible suspect” as 22-year-old Camarillo resident Juan Sanchez.
As detectives were familiar with Sanchez who was “known to live in the area,” surveillance of his residence was hastily established.
Not long afterward, Sanchez “exited his house” and was summarily detained by deputies. A quick search of his person revealed Sanchez to be in possession of “property related to the victim,” whereupon he was taken into custody and transported to Ventura County Jail. He was booked on a charge of robbery, with his bail set at $500,000.
