“PRESS RELEASE: Police Make Robbery Arrest, One Outstanding
On 05/15/2023 at around 8:20 p.m., the Paso Robles Police Department responded to a robbery in the 1200 block of Alamo Creek, in the Dry Creek Apartment complex. A caller reported two men forced a family at gunpoint into an apartment and robbed them of personal belongings. Police raced to the scene, but both suspects fled prior to our arrival.
As the investigation began, we learned the two men allegedly responsible were Leonel Herrejon Sanchez (33, Paso Robles) and Angel Chavez (19, Paso Robles). Our investigation also led us to Walmart where Chavez was seen on surveillance footage attempting to use a credit card belonging to one of the victims.
On 05/17/2023, a patrol officer spotted Chavez near 28th and Park Street. Chavez was arrested without incident. Chavez was transported to the SLO County Jail and booked on four felony charges: 211 PC – robbery, 207 PC – kidnapping, 459 PC – burglary, and 182(a)(1) PC – conspiracy.
The Paso Robles Police Department is still looking for Leonel Herrejon Sanchez, who is considered to be armed and dangerous.
