Lake County, California – On May 24, 2024, at approximately 4:00 PM, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office swiftly responded to a silent panic alarm activated by a store clerk at the Soda Bay Market. The clerk reported a robbery had just taken place, resulting in the theft of over $2,000 in cash and merchandise. Surveillance footage revealed the suspect, donning a white motorcycle helmet, wielding what appeared to be a handgun during the commission of the crime. The perpetrator absconded on a motorcycle toward Buckingham before deputies could arrive at the scene.

Utilizing Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) technology deployed in the vicinity, law enforcement scrutinized motorcycles traversing the area in the days leading up to the robbery. A diligent deputy identified a motorcycle resembling the suspect’s vehicle, with a rider exhibiting similar characteristics to the perpetrator.
