Several armed robbery cases in the city of Yuma have now been solved. Acting on a phone call from a restaurant worker on Wednesday led to the crack in the case police needed. A female employee of Mariscos Mar Azul on Fourth Avenue advised police she was being followed home after closing the restaurant.
Police stopped the vehicle in question and arrested the two occupants in the vehicle, 42-year-old Dennis Aguerro and a 16-year-old male. A search of the vehicle turned up a shotgun, a ski mask and rubber gloves.
The pair were allegedly involved in Armed Robberies which occurred in April and May involving Tacos Mi Rancho on Fourth Avenue, RC Liquor on East 24th Street, the CMS Store on West Eighth Street, Fourth Avenue Liquor and Eighth Street Liquor.
Aguerro is expected to be charged with four counts of Armed Robbery, one count of Attempted Armed Robbery and one count of Conspiracy to commit Armed Robbery.
The 16-year-old male was booked into the Yuma County Juvenile Justice Center on four counts of Armed Robbery, six counts of Aggravated Assault, one count of Attempted Armed Robbery and one count of Conspiracy to commit Armed Robbery.
