Modesto, CA – Quick team work puts three suspects in jail for their connection to a series of armed robberies.

This week, patrol officers were called to investigate multiple reports of armed robberies at businesses on the east side of Modesto. In each of the four robberies, the victims have reported that a man enters the business with his face covered and demands money while pointing a handgun. After receiving the money, the suspect then flees the area on foot.

Fearing the suspects may strike again; detectives with the Violent Crimes Unit focused their attention on identifying the suspects involved in this crime spree. On Thursday, detectives arrested 24-year-old Mayson Mears of Ceres, 23-year-old Darin Avedissian of Modesto and 30-year-old Anthony Campos of Modesto on varying counts of robbery.

“This case was a great collaboration by multiple units within our department”, said Detective Sergeant Steve Hinkley. “Through their quick work of canvassing neighborhoods and talking to victims and witnesses, we were able to identify the robbery suspects and put them in jail.”
