Martin Eusebio and Vivian Martinez, both 18 years old, were arrested after an alleged robbery and high-speed pursuit in Garden Grove on Friday night.
Garden Grove police officers received calls of an armed robbery near the area of Brookhurst Street and Westminster Avenue around 6:40 p.m.
A female victim told the police officers that the armed suspects approached her and a friend as they were sitting in a parking lot and eating.
Eusebio and Martinez allegedly threatened to shoot the victim before they drove off with around $200 in stolen cash. The vehicle they fled in was later spotted by police officers.
Of course Eusebio and Martinez refused to pull over which lead to a police pursuit. The suspects drove at very high speeds during the purstui, eventually losing control near Harbor Boulevard and Westminster Avenue. At that point they crashed into a flower shop at the corner.
The suspects are old enough to be charged as adults. Their lives are now effectively ruined – for a paltry $200.
