OCSD investigators arrest four in Yorba Linda armed robbery


A Monday, Oct. 16 news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department:

Orange County Sheriff’s Department investigators have arrested four men suspected of luring a man to a fraudulent business deal and robbing him at gunpoint in Yorba Linda.

Deputies at about 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, responded to reports of an armed robbery in the 20100 block of Channing Lane.

The victim told investigators he had arranged to engage in a business transaction with the suspects. When the victim arrived at the meeting place, the suspects did not show and instead followed the victim to his home where they robbed him.

Four suspects wearing hoodies, one brandishing a handgun, fled with a large amount of cash, and the victim’s wallet and cell phone.
