Two Suspects Arrested in Armed Business Robberies NR10021ah

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has arrested a pair of suspects in a string of business robberies.  

On January 13, 2010, Angelo Wngo, 18, and Devon Glover, 21, were both arrested after a patrol unit stopped a blue BMW for a traffic investigation in the 3900 block of Coco Avenue in South Los Angeles.

They were both taken to LAPD’s Southwest Division Jail on suspicion of robbery and are being held in lieu of $200,000 bail.  

Since December 2009, the suspects have hit up to six stores throughout the Los Angeles area.  According to detectives, the suspects would enter the store and walk around posing as customers. A day later, the suspects would return and commit a takeover robbery during which they ordered the employees to a back room, tied them up and demanded access to the safe.  The suspects then left with an undisclosed amount of money and drove off.  

During the investigation, Wilshire Division robbery detectives learned the suspects’ vehicle description and shared the information with neighboring police stations, which lead to the arrest of the robbers.

Detectives believe the suspects are part of a large robbery ring and are asking for the public’s help in recognizing Wingo and Glover to link them to additional reported robberies.

Photos of the robbers are available through the LAPD’s Media Relations Section.

Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call Wilshire robbery detectives at 213-473-0514 or 213-922-8205.  During non-business hours or on weekends calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
