Since April 9th there have been eleven robberies of 7-Eleven stores in the city of Santa Ana, the last occurring on April 26th. From surveillance footage, it appears there are a total of four suspects involved in the series. Three suspects operate with one suspect approaching the clerk and simulating a weapon in his waistband. While this suspect is with the store clerk, the remaining suspect(s) standby as lookouts.
On 4/24/16 Miguel Baltazar Ledesma was arrested while loitering outside the 2112 S. Main Street Store. The clerk recognized him from a prior robbery and called 911.
