Armed Robbers Steal Cash, Tequila, Cigars In Tustin, Costa Mesa

TUSTIN (CBS) — Police say two robbers are at large after robbing two Orange County liquor stores armed with a shotgun, taking money, tequila and cigars.

Investigators say the suspects went to two businesses near the Costa Mesa (55) Freeway in Tustin and Costa Mesa, robbing them within a half-hour.

The first robbery was reported at a liquor store in the 150 block of North Tustin Street at about 8:10 p.m. Tuesday, where two men – one armed with a shotgun – escaped with an undisclosed amount of money, Tustin police said.

The second robbery occurred at a deli in the 600 block of West Baker Street in Costa Mesa, about 25 minutes later, according to Costa Mesa police Sgt. Matt Grimmond said.

The suspects in the Costa Mesa robbery, who also pulled a shotgun, matched the descriptions given from the Tustin robbery. At this robbery, the suspects stole an undisclosed amount of money, a bottle of tequila and cigars before they fled.

There were no injuries in either robbery.

The men wore black clothes, hooded sweatshirts and covered their faces with masks or bandanas. They were seen driving a dark-colored car, possibly a black Toyota Camry.

    Small world: My brother and I were handcuffed and tossed in a patrol unit last night because of this. While its true we were in a non-toyota black car(unlike the perps), I guess we still fit the description according to the cops. How is this possible if we were wearing brightly colored clothes and no hooded sweatshirts? After overhearing one of the cops comment about how we were not the guys I get the feeling that they kept us much longer just for the “we are on this” show.

    It’s really embarrasing to be handcuffed and displayed to a witnesses while passerbys look at you.

    Mr. Doe-
    Part of living in this country I suppose. A rapid changer of clothes could explain the costume difference. You are walking the streets a free man today, are you not?

    1. johndoe says:

      I guess it is part of living in this country. I guess we could have possibly robbed a couple of stores, changed all clothes from top to bottom(dark to light), stashed the tequila behind a tree, spent the money, hid the shotgun and was stupid enough to knowingly pull up next to the cops after leaving my driveway.

    John Doe, my wife loves tequila, and we are white. We as Americans are innocent until proven guilty. Unfortunately, the tight knit cop community mishandles more and more ethnic related suspects these days that they should begin to fire all police and restaff to make positive change. I feel for my African American and Hispanic friends who deal with this on a regular basis. I helped one friend of mine get a million dollar settlement because of a false arrest against him. Stand tall, their days are numbered, because organizations like the ACLU and other human interest groups will be hammering down on the wrong doers.

      Deleting my comment is not going to help your wife’s drinking problem.

    2. Joe says:

      Anybody that “loves” alcohol has a drinking problem.
      Face it Mr. Freedom Fighter your wife is a lush.

      You talk like this only because you never lived in those neighborhood or had them apes take over your neighborhood.

      You don’t know what you are talking about.You never lived it.

    Two guys stading if front of a liquor store on their cell phones. One is a dressed like a gang banger (Hispanic, black, asian, take your pick), the other (let’s assume the same ethnicity for argument sake) is dressed in a business suit. The store owner calls the police saying that there is someone in front of his store with a gun. The police arrive….who do you think that are going to point their guns at!
    Profiling, racial or otherwise, is never going away. Get used to it.
