On 08/09/14 at approximately 3:27 p.m. two male subjects entered a jewelry store in the 17400 block of 17th St. The subjects requested to look at jewelry. When the employee displayed the jewelry one of the subjects pointed a large caliber handgun at the employee. A second employee inside the business noticed the robbery occurring and retrieved a handgun then fired several shots at the suspects. The suspects fled the business in an unknown direction. There was no loss and it is not believed the suspects were injured by the gunfire. Additionally, none of the employees, or innocent bystanders were injured as a result of the incident.
An extensive area check was conducted and the suspects were not located at that time.
On 08/17/14 Tustin PD Detectives were able to identify one of the suspects involved in this robbery. Detectives located and arrested Christopher Titus (Age 24) at a residence in Bellflower. Titus was arrested without incident and booked into Orange County Jail for Armed Robbery.
The second suspect has yet to be identified and is still at large. The Tustin Police Department is asking for the public’s help to identify the second suspect. During the crime the at large suspect was seen wearing a red shirt, dark pants and a dark hat. Anyone with information regarding the identity of the second suspect or any further information regarding the case is encouraged to contact Sgt. Stephanie Nichols @ 714-573-3257.
