Hesperia Man Arrested for Robbery of Fastrip Food Store

HESPERIA – A 20-year-old male suspect broke the glass doors to a Hesperia Fastrip Food Store and demanded cash from the employee on Sunday night. At around 11:15 p.m. deputies from the Hesperia station were dispatched to the store located 16117 Main Street in the City of Hesperia.

When they arrived they saw both the victim and the suspect behind the counter with the suspect demanding money from the cash register. The suspect, identified as Joseph Ray Farias was arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center for strong arm robbery.
