The Oakland Police Department (OPD) arrested five individuals connected to an armed robbery series. The three adults and two juveniles have plagued the city of Oakland over the last 30 days, committing at least 10 armed robberies citywide.
Through the relentless and collective efforts of the OPD’s Intelligence Division, Robbery Division, Community Resource Officers, Violent Crime Operations Center (VCOC), Patrol, and Ceasefire Division, these five dangerous individuals were safely taken into custody.
Officers recovered a loaded firearm and evidence connecting the group to additional crimes.
The cases will be presented to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for charging.
Investigators are looking into the possibility that this group may be involved in additional robberies.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact OPD at (510) 238-3326.
To date, OPD has recovered 400 firearms.
