CC Police Nab Last of Three Suspects Who Robbed Gas Station at Gunpoint

Culver City police have arrested the last of three suspects who allegedly robbed at gunpoint a Shell gas station on Sepulveda Boulevard last month.

The young suspect, whose age was not disclosed, was arrested last Thursday in Whittier and booked for robbery, according to the Culver City Police Department. The other two suspects were ``arrested recently'' by other law enforcement agencies, police said.

On March 18 at 11:45 a.m., Culver City police officers were called just to the gas station at 3801 Sepulveda Blvd., near Venice Boulevard, and made contact with two employees who said three suspects entered the gas station and ``began to engage the victims in conversation'' before all three produced handguns and demanded money, according to the CCPD.

The employees handed over $438 from the cash register and the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle, police said. No injuries were reported in the robbery.

The three suspects -- whose names were not released -- have ``extensive criminal arrest'' histories and are suspected by the CCPD to have been involved in similar robberies throughout Los Angeles County.

Anyone with information on the robbery or any similar crimes possibly committed by the suspects is urged to contact CCPD Sgt. Eddie Baskaron at 310-253-6316.
