Apple Valley Staples Store Robbed at Gunpoint

APPLE VALLEY – An armed suspect robbed a Staples in the Town of Apple Valley on Sunday evening.

At around 5:32 p.m. deputies from the Apple Valley Station responded to the store located at 19201 Bear Valley Road. Witnesses said that the suspect, a Hispanic man who was in his mid-20’s to early-30’s, 5’8-5’10, 180-190 pounds, with a large “W” tattooed on the right side of his neck, and his right hand wrapped (as if it was injured) robbed the store at gunpoint.

The suspect was last seen wearing a teal-colored hooded sweatshirt saying “California Republic” with a bear on the front, a black shirt underneath, and khaki colored shorts.

The suspect fled westbound from the store with undisclosed products in a blue 4-door sedan occupied by a dark-haired heavy build driver and a backseat passenger. Sheriff’s patrol vehicles and the sheriff’s helicopter (40-King) conducted a search for the suspect vehicle. Deputies were not immediately able to review surveillance footage due to no available personnel authorized to access it being available. 

No suspect is in custody at this time. Information will be updated as it becomes available. Anyone who has any information pertinent to the incident should contact the Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001 or those wishing to remain anonymous should call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME or leave a tip on the We-Tip Website at
