Arrest Made in 7-Eleven Robbery Spree and Compton Bakery Looting

Suspected Teen Robber Connected to Compton Bakery Looting

A member of a crew suspected of robbing multiple 7-Eleven convenience stores across the Los Angeles area is believed to have also been involved in the looting of a Compton bakery. This incident occurred following a street takeover earlier this month. The unidentified juvenile is one of seven teens connected to a series of armed robberies that have taken place in various cities, including Los Angeles, Long Beach, Compton, Lakewood, Signal Hill, and Carson.

The crew’s string of robberies came to an end on January 13th when Deputy Luis Cisneros from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department caught them in the act at a 7-Eleven in Carson. A video of the robbery, obtained by KTLA, went viral and made national headlines. It showed three masked thieves holding employees at gunpoint while a fourth entered through the side door. Deputy Cisneros intervened and held the suspects at gunpoint until additional units arrived to make the arrests. It was later discovered that the firearms used by the suspects were replica BB guns.

Following the arrests, two more teens were apprehended after a search warrant was served in Los Angeles. The next day, a teenage girl turned herself in at the LASD station in Lakewood. All seven suspects have been transferred to the Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall in Downey as they await their court dates. They face multiple robbery charges, as well as firearms charges.

One of the suspects, who was not present during the 7-Eleven robbery, was identified as one of the individuals who looted Ruben’s Bakery & Mexican Food in Compton on January 2nd. Approximately 100 people broke into the business, causing extensive damage and stealing merchandise and other valuables. Despite the incident, the owners plan to reopen, and the community has rallied to support them.

The investigation is ongoing to determine if the seven juveniles are connected to additional 7-Eleven robberies. In a separate incident, a second robbery crew was apprehended after committing an armed robbery at another 7-Eleven. The suspects, using replica BB guns, stole cash from the convenience store but were tracked down and arrested by authorities.

While the Sheriff’s Department has not confirmed any connection between the two burglary crews, both are being investigated for potential involvement in more robberies in the area. Anyone with information about these crimes or other robberies is urged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
