The Antioch Police Department reported an attempted armed robbery at a Denny’s on Lone Tree Way early Tuesday morning that resulted in three arrests and a firearm recovery.
The incident occurred at 12:14 am Tuesday where three suspects entered the restaurant and ordered everyone to the ground. One suspect brandished a firearm, but all three fled before taking anything.
According to police, witnesses gave a clear description of the suspects, the involved vehicle and the weapon they used. The business also had video surveillance that was reviewed by officers which captured the incident and the suspects.
Two hours later, around 2:15 am, while on routine patrol, Officer Inabnett saw a similar vehicle on G Street and contacted the occupants. Officer Duff was able to identify the occupants of the vehicle as the suspects.
As a result, a 20 year old Oakley resident and two juveniles were arrested and a loaded firearm was recovered. The adult suspect was transported to County Jail and the two juvenile suspects were transported to Juvenile Hall.
No further details were released.
