Man Arrested for Series of Robberies

Los Angeles: A 45-year old man was arrested for committing a series of robberies in Los Angeles and Burbank.

On January 17, 2009, Robbery-Homicide detectives assumed investigative responsibility for a series of 8 robberies in the San Fernando Valley and Central Bureaus.  The same suspect was linked to 2 additional robberies in the City of Burbank.  The suspect, now identified as Timothy Allread, entered 7-11 stores during the early morning hours, armed with a dark colored “Mac-10” type pistol. Allread would point the pistol at the clerk, take money, and run away.

Witnesses reported that the suspect had a distinctive goatee and wore a hooded sweatshirt that partially concealed his face.  

On January 23, at around 3 a.m., officers assigned to the Foothill Area Hype Unit were conducting surveillance at one of the previously targeted 7-11 stores when they saw an individual matching the suspect’s description.  The officers recognized him as the suspect from the surveillance videos in the previous robberies.

Allread, 45, of Los Angeles, was arrested and booked at Foothill Jail.  His bail has been set at $400,000.  Allread was in possession of a replica pistol at the time of arrest.

Since Allread is in custody, the surveillance footage depicting him will not be made available.

Anyone with information about this case, is asked to contact Robbery-Homicide Detectives at 213-485-2511.  After hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 or by texting CRIMES (274637) and beginning the message with the letters LAPD.  Tipsters may also submit information on the LAPD website  www.lapdonline.org.  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
