Armed Robbery & Vehicle Burglary Suspects Captured, Detectives Seek Additional Victims

Lancaster Station deputies arrested two armed robbery and vehicle burglary suspects. Detectives are now seeking additional victims who may have had their vehicles broken into at two local gyms.
On Friday, January 11, 2019, Lancaster Station was contacted by a victim who stated his vehicle had been broken into while parked at 24 Hour Fitness located at 1220 West Avenue K in the city of Lancaster. Numerous items were stolen, including the victim’s cell phone and identification.
The following day, Saturday, January 12, 2019, Deputies responded to a call for service in the parking lot of the Best Western Hotel located at 2038 West Avenue I in the city of Lancaster. That victim stated he was approached by two suspects who each brandished a handgun and demanded the bags the victim was carrying. The victim was able to provide a description of the two males in addition to a description of their vehicle, a green Chrysler 300.
Deputies ardently worked on several leads, including one that led them to a location on the 46000 block of 70th Street East in the unincorporated area of Lancaster. When deputies arrived, they immediately located a green Chrysler 300 in the driveway, matching the vehicle used in the armed
robbery earlier in the day.
The location was quickly secured and a search warrant was obtained. During the search of the location, numerous identification cards, cell phones and debit cards were located, including items belonging to the victim from the vehicle burglary at 24 Hour Fitness and the victim of the armed robbery at the Best Western parking lot. The additional items recovered matched items that have been previously reported stolen from various vehicle burglaries at both 24 Hour Fitness and Planet Fitness located at 44600 Valley Central Way in Lancaster.
During the investigation, a 14 year old male was identified by one of the victims at the driver of the Chrysler 300 who robbed him at gunpoint. The juvenile was detained and transported to Sylmar Detention Facility. Additionally, Jordan Cooper, a 20 year old male was arrested and charged with robbery. He was transported and booked at Lancaster Station and has a $50,000 bail.
Detectives are now seeking additional victims. If your vehicle was broken into while parked at either 24 Hour Fitness or Planet Fitness, please contact Burglary Team, Detective Elizondo at (661) 940-3864. We thank our deputies for diligently and quickly investigating this crime and taking two burglars off our streets! Great work by all! Remember, if you see something, say something!
