Antioch: Suspects in Cielo Supermarket Armed Robbery in Custody

On Friday, two suspects in connection with an armed robbery at Cielo Supermarket in the City of Antioch were taken into custody on Highway 4.

According to preliminary information, the robbery occurred just before 11:30 am where a security guard was pushed down and the suspect brandished a firearm after a theft.  The suspects fled the scene.

After a Countywide BOLO (be-on-the-lookout) was issued, Contra Costa County Sheriff Deputies located the suspect vehicle on Highway 4 near Laurel. After a vehicle stop with use of an Antioch Police Department K9,  two people were in custody. The firearm was also located.

No other information was readily available.

I was about to head for this store when a phone call interrupted my exit. Otherwise, I would have been in there during this robbery and that’s not good. Maybe the store owners should hire TWO security guards who, hopefully, are armed to prevent this from happening. Good thing the robbers were apprehended.

Yeah! Opportunity for thieves, to be sure! Maybe those two should spend the rest of their lives being fed nothing but Habañero peppers and no water!

The ignorant thieves were caught, bottom line. No good trash right there.

I used to like this city … my people have been here with the 1880’s. Now, with the pestilence moving here from the most violent and corrupt city in the states, the whole place is falling apart. Yes, this is indeed now where the slogan, “Opportunity lives here” applies to the thieves, homeless, fireworks-basting idiots and other trash. God help us. Maybe it it hits nadir, it can’t go anyway but up again.
