VICTORVILLE, Ca. – Authorities are attempting to locate a black male suspect who was involved in a conspiracy to commit robbery investigation.
On August 12, 2019, deputies from the Victorville Station responded to the Circle K located in the 15200 block of Nisqualli Road for the report of a man with a gun. The reporting party told dispatchers that he witnessed two black males at Circle K placing firearms in their waistbands and entering the store.
The investigation into the incident revealed that the two suspects went into the store, walked around inside, then exited and went out to a black Lincoln sedan. Each of the two suspects placed firearms in their waistbands and pulled the hoods of their sweatshirts over their heads and went back into the store.
A deputy arrived shortly after and one suspect walked out of the store and went to the dumpster area before fleeing the scene. Aaron Briggs, 18, of Helendale bought something and exited the store. He was taken into custody at the scene. Authorities said that there was a loaded firearm near where he was detained.
Briggs was arrested and booked at the High Desert Detention Center for conspiracy to commit a crime, robbery, carrying a loaded firearm and burglary.
A second loaded firearm was found in the dumpster where the other suspect was seen fleeing the incident location. An extensive search for the suspect was conducted, however he was not located.
The outstanding suspect was described as a black male adult, approximately 5’7” tall, and 150 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, gray shorts, white socks and black sandals.
