Teen arrested in connection with armed robbery at gas station

FALLBROOK – A 16-year-old boy was arrested after allegedly robbing a Fallbrook gas station at gunpoint early today.

A clerk at the Shell gas station on South Main Avenue near South Mission Road told deputies a masked suspect took cash and merchandise at gunpoint around 2 a.m., then fled, according to the county sheriff’s department.

Deputies detained the suspect after spotting him walking about two blocks away. A subsequent search turned up a semiautomatic handgun, cash and items stolen from the convenience store, sheriff’s Sgt. Jim Pucillo said.

The boy, whose name was withheld, was arrested and booked into Juvenile Hall on suspicion of robbery, Pucillo said.

    How much do you want to bet that he has a Hispanic surname. 10-1 odds.

      Obviously, this was the work of a criminal mastermind. He thought walking away at 2AM was the best getaway.

    I was gonna say “There goes the neighborhood”, but it seems that shipped sailed some time ago.

    How much do you want to bet this dude @liveoakparker is racist ^^^

  4. Gina   February 9, 2017 at 1:16 pm

    Yes there goes the neighborhood because crime only exists in Fallbrook. Every other city is crime free.

    People nowadays are so racist

  6. Ray (the real one)   February 9, 2017 at 5:35 pm

    We will never know. If your a juvenile and do a crime, no protections.

    Agreeing with Mario. They are crawling out of the woodwork because of the election which they think gives their violent wishes legitimacy. Steve Bannon does not want us to live together in peace, and these little puppets are voicing his program. This is a town where the White Aryan Resistance used to hold court,

      The proposed wall just got a foot higher.

    Mario – it isn’t racism if it is true, I would take the bet with liveoaker (bet ten to get one) and with you (bet one to get ten) – that means I also think the teen will be Hispanic, and i don’t think Liveoaker is racist. Majority of crimes in Fallbrook are, unfortunately committed by Hispanics.l

    You still love the second amendment? Do you?

    @Mario How much u wanna bet liveoakparker wouldn’t repeat his comment out in public.

  11. Liveoakparker   February 10, 2017 at 7:47 am

    @Mario. or a realist. put your money where your mouth is. $100 will get you a $1,000

    BUILD THE WALL !!!!!!!!!

  13. Fallbrookian   February 10, 2017 at 9:09 am

    Funny how you throw around the “racist” name just because of his opinion.
    I suspect he’s probably right, and Concerned is also correct.

  14. JB   February 10, 2017 at 9:17 am

    I think if a juvenile does something so bad like this, their rights of privacy should be taken away. The public has the right to know who are the criminals. I don’t care if they are under 18, they held up a person at gunpoint! Let us know who this jackhole is! What a total loser and he’s going to juvi for what? A few hours to be put back on the street?! I hope not!!!

    • Mike S.   February 11, 2017 at 5:03 am

      I totally agree with u. That juvy gave that privilege after he committed the crime.

    Fallbrook needs to stop hiring and renting to illegals and gangbangers. Send a loud and clear “Not welcome” sign.

    It’s EASY TO BE RACIST . . . When we know we’ve given every junk yard beaner in town ten chances each in the past five years . . As Daddy said “THEY’RE GOING BACK’ . . . Adios Amigos . . if you would have learned to how to behave and stayed off welfare, you could have had it all.. Now? NOTHING..

  17. Ray (the real one)   February 10, 2017 at 1:08 pm

    Liveoakparker: No bet, easy money. The crime reports for Fallbrook or being more broad, San Diego County resemble the menu at Albertos.

  18. Liveoakparker   February 10, 2017 at 2:42 pm

    @Nancy. Where in public would you like me to repeat my comment. I am just betting the odds. If the story was about someone going crazy and killing and eating people I would make the same bet that his name was Johnson, Smith or some other European surname

  19. calfish   February 11, 2017 at 8:57 am

    All these comments show a lack of education, how many of you are over 60? how many of you remember that all of North County was ranch and farm land and who worked those farms and ranches and why? This is your home work assignment

  20. grunt   February 11, 2017 at 3:54 pm

    Liveoaker – actually, his name is Li (http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/02/11/canadian-man-who-beheaded-bus-passenger-granted-total-freedom.html)

  21. Gina   February 12, 2017 at 12:10 am

    This town is full of racist idiots who like to be all big and bad behind a keyboard. Bunch of pricks.

  22. Liveoakparker   February 12, 2017 at 1:09 pm

    @calfish. you 100% correct. Those men back in the day were hard working productive members of society. I am going on 60 and have lived here all my life. The Hispanics (Mexicans) I grew up with are for the most part, a group of good men who I am proud to call friends. The problem is these punks that we have running around these days. It wouldn’t mater if they were blue, black, green, or yellow. I would have a problem with them. The odds are that he was Hispanic, I was betting the odds. Any takers?

  23. Fallbrook09   February 13, 2017 at 12:03 pm


    You are probably right that he is a Hispanic male. After all they are the ones living in poverty in this town and poverty makes them do stupid things.
    What everyone is trying to say is racist, is the fact that you automatically assume its a Hispanic male. He could be African american or even a crack head white guy (we also have plenty of those in Fallbrook)

  24. grunt   February 13, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    fallbrook09 – you say Liveoaker is probably correct, yet call him a racist for being correct?

  25. Preston   February 14, 2017 at 7:00 am

    Prejudicial comments indicate the level of one’s education and unfortunately we have residents that should consider returning to school. The problem here is not the teen’s nationality but the fact that We the People have allowed the authorities to diminish discipline in school and at home.

  26. Ray (the real one)   February 19, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    Preston: where do you get this nonsense from? Spelling and critique about education, must be a liberal without facts. know many with numerous degrees who don’t agree with liberal values, I for one. It’s my god given right and my constitutional right to dislike whoever I choose. Let them move next to you.

    I am not a fan of the “tan klan”.
