The Paso Robles Police Department announced the arrest of two suspects believed to be responsible for a pair of armed robberies that occurred in Paso Robles.
The two suspects have been identified as Ian Mike Robbins, 42, of Paso Robles and Victoria Renee Trujillo, 46, also of Paso Robles.
Robbins and Trujillo were arrested shortly after midnight on Wednesday after being located by investigators at a home on Chardonnay Place in rural Paso Robles.
The two are believed to be connected to two recent armed robberies in Paso Robles.
The first armed robbery occurred on November 16 at La Miramar clothing store, and the second on November 22, at DK’s Donuts at 1740 Spring St.
Detectives had been pursuing leads from the La Miramar robbery investigation and were able to use those leads to identify Ian Robbins as a suspect believed to be responsible for the DK’s Donuts robbery.
Investigators believe Trujillo acted as Robbins’ accomplice and getaway driver in both robberies.
Store clerks from both robberies said Robbins was armed with a pistol when he entered the business and demanded money.
The clerks complied and provided the suspect with money from the cash registers along with other items from the store.
After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, Robbins fled out the front door of the stores to an awaiting getaway vehicle operated by Trujillo.
Investigators are working with other law enforcement agencies to determine if Robbins and Trujillo are responsible for other robberies in San Luis Obispo County.
Anyone with information about the robberies is urged to call the Paso Robles Police Department or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP. You can also submit an anonymous report online.
