Two men were arrested Wednesday morning for five armed robberies in Buena Park, Fullerton and Cerritos, officials said.
Cameron Becker, 20, of Cerritos, and Alton Jones, 20, of Los Angeles, were booked for robbery in Buena Park after an alleged crime spree that began 10 p.m. Tuesday. Three robberies took place in Buena Park, one in Fullerton and one in Cerritos, said Lt. Steve Holliday of the Buena Park Police Department.
The targeted businesses included two gas stations and a Pizza Hut in Buena Park, said Buena Park police Cpl. Andy Luong.
A Chevron gas station in the 13300 block of South Street in Cerritos was robbed about 11 p.m. Tuesday, said Lt. Jeff Deedrick of the Cerritos Sheriff's Station.
Buena Park police detectives circulated a description of Becker and Jones' vehicle used in one of the Buena Park crimes, and on Wednesday morning police in Fullerton stopped the vehicle, detained two men and recovered stolen property, along with weapons, Luong said.
