Suspects arrested for armed robbery they committed in 2018.
On 12/22/18, at approximately 11:55 pm, two subjects armed with handguns committed a robbery of Copper Still Liquors in Newbury Park.  The suspects took property from both the business and one of the employees. 
On 04/11/19, at approximately 10:50 pm, patrol officers from the El Monte Police Department responded to an armed robbery that had occurred in their city.  Shortly after, they responded to a call of a suspicious subject loitering in the area of a local liquor store, who ran from police when they tried to contact him.  This subject, Travon Jackson, was eventually located by police, hiding in the area, and identified as the robbery suspect.  They located a loaded firearm and evidence of the robbery in and around both Jackson’s vehicle and where he had been seen by officers.  During a search of Jackson’s vehicle, property belonging to the employee from the Copper Still Liquors robbery was located. 
After being contacted by detectives from the El Monte Police Department, detectives from the East County Major Crimes Unit responded to the city of El Monte, where additional evidence connected to the Copper Still Liquors robbery was recovered from Jackson’s vehicle. 
During the course of the investigation, additional evidence was discovered by detectives which further indicated that Jackson and Richard Keeling were the perpetrators of the Copper Still Liquors robbery.  Detectives obtained arrest warrants for both subjects. 
On 02/17/21, Keeling was arrested by the Fullerton Police Department on his robbery warrant.  
On 02/19/21, Keeling was transported and booked into the Pre-Trial Detention Facility. 
On 02/26/21, Jackson, who was in custody on his robbery conviction in Los Angeles County, was transported and booked into the Pre-Trial Detention Facility on his warrant.
