Police: Fourth Of July Beer Run Ends In Jail, Robbery Charges

INDIO (CBS) — A quick stop at a convenience store for a case of beer on Independence Day ended with two men in jail on robbery charges, police said Tuesday.

“It started off as a beer run, but it turned into a robbery when they pulled a knife,” said Indio police spokesman Ben Guitron.

Joseph Diaz, 18, and Christopher Diaz, 19, were arrested on suspicion of robbing the AM/PM mini-mart at 82-338 Highway 111 reported at about 12:45 a.m., Guitron said.

    Mike…did we touch a nerve?

  • Julius

    Are you a gay illegal who is using a white name? Those type of invitations are reserved for women unless you have been to prison! LOL!

  • LetUsSee

    Brothers who do the crime together should do the time together…what a wonderful world we live in. Or, did they just happen to both have the last name Diaz.

  • LetUsSee

    Do you mean caucasians?….lol

    Seems like we touched a nerve with you too. The fact of the matter is it is more latinos than anyone else here, so why are you so defensive when the crime numbers reflect that?

    • 1stman

      No, I got it right. Look it up if you want to know what it means Defensive? About what? You guys don’t like people playing the race card, yet everytime someone with a Spanish lastname makes the news you generalize then into being here illegally.

      • Ron G

        The majority of latinos in Los Angeles are either illegal or anchor babies. Dude is just stating what we think when we see a latino in the news. Like it or not it is the truth but people are scared to voice their opinion. I for one am not.

      • Scott S.

        I’m with you Ron. People don’t like stereotypes but perception in reality. Everytime I see a latino the first thing I think is illegal or illegal parents. That is just how it is in Los Angeles. Look at the news when all the illegals protested. There must have been millions. Numbers don’t lie.

    Dumb and Dumber Diaz

  • QuestionfromWhitey

    Question for you latinos out there. Why do I hear and see so much about Mexico and Brown Pride but when you look at Mexico, they have always been a 3rd world country. Please tell me if this is part of what makes you proud. The country should have been more developed by now, they have been in existence a lot longer than the US and you cannot even compare the 2 countries. What gives?

  • Grant

    Don’t care if they are legal or illegal.Just get rid of them.

  • 1stman

    When I see CACS (whiteys) all I think is child/grand child of former slave owner, murderer of most native American tribes, serial killer, rapist, coke head, etc…

    • Scott S.

      If you were you are supposed to be (Messico) than you would not have to worry about seeing whitey.

  • TOM

    I thought illegals could not be arrested. As soon as the democrats hear about this they will let these illegals go free because that is two votes the democrats do not want to lose.
