When Deputies arrived the store clerk reported a male subject walked into the store and demanded he open the cash register. The subject reached in his pocket as to grab for a gun and said “don’t make me do it.” The store clerk opened the register and the subject grabbed the cash. The subject fled on foot, and the clerk called 911.

 Shortly after 2:00am, Sheriff’s Dispatch received a call regarding a suspicious subject in the alley behind Bonanza restaurant. Deputies responded and contacted a male subject later identified as 21 year old Anthony Lopez out of Olivehurst, CA. Lopez matched the description of the robbery suspect.

 Deputies detained Lopez for questioning. After questioning Lopez he admitted to the robbery.  No Firearm was located.

 Lopez was arrested for 211 PC, second degree robbery, and transported to the Inyo County Jail.

Too many really DUMB criminales, and we in these over-touristed towns really have to watch those “tourists” and “travelers” from the big sprawl-places elsewhere in the State of Gotham (CA) who come to Inyo to wreak their havoc as I have seen time and time again since unfortunately moving to… Read more »

David. I grew up in So Cal. No stranger to crime. Just pointing out that the finger should not always be pointed at “tourists” when it comes to bad guys.

Good job by Law Enforcement finding and catching this guy !!
Living here,we are SO FORTUNATE to have ICSO that actually do something and not sit on their hands for an hour like other States and Counties,according to recent news, seem to have.

Mono Person You don’t got to be an “expert” to see how that was bungled in Texas. Besides,don’t you think it’s a huge news story,incident and issue where people are going to have their opinions ? Or should we all just shut up and/or praise and thank them for the… Read more »

Can’t stop yourself, can you? Wait for the facts to come out and then spout off about what should have been done. Because you know what you would have done, because of your expertise. It’s a full blown tragedy.

That is what chat rooms and reply’s are reserved for. A lot of law enforcement officers have big ego’s and think they “know it all” and they DO NOT. They also attempt to look at anyone not in law enforcement from their soap box.

Peter, I actually agree with you somewhat, but please learn the difference between plural and possessive. You diminish you credibility when you use reply’s instead of replies , and ego’s instead of egos. Literacy still matters.

Yup. People don’t know how to spell, their device attempts to make sense of their nonsense and comes up with a word. The writer does not bother to proofread but wouldn’t catch the error anyway because they still don’t know how to spell. And I have to laugh at how… Read more »

Rick With my few experiences with LE in the Owens Valley,not so much. But the bigger cities,agree 100 %. IMO,a big reason for that is the phony reporting from some news agencies. With the recent Uvalde Texas school shooting,not an hour after the scene was being investigated,and long before the… Read more »

Aren’t you the same poster that was full of opinions and answers regarding the pandemic a while back? What’s your background? Epidemiologist? Public Health Expert? Or does running a motel make you an “expert” on global pandemics?
