VICTORVILLE – A homeless Victorville man who was arrested only one week ago for felony second-degree robbery was sentenced on Monday, April 9, 2018.
Eldemando Rose, 39, a Victorville area transient, in a Victorville Court on Monday, pleaded no contest pursuant to a plea agreement of a single count of second-degree burglary. As part of the plea agreement, the second charge of second-degree robbery was dropped.
According to witness statements collected by deputies on the night of the incident that occurred at the Arco Mini-Mart, Rose walked into the store located in the 15400 block of Palmdale Road, near Park Avenue at around 11:00 p.m. For unknown reasons, he became upset and yelled at the store employee, who then asked him to leave. Rose left, but came back still exceptionally confrontational. The store employee in fear for her safety went behind the counter. Rose left with an undisclosed amount of unpaid merchandise. Deputies were called and responded to the scene where they located Rose nearby with the stolen merchandise in his possession.
Rose was booked into the High Desert Detention Center for Burglary and Panhandling but was later charged with felony second-degree burglary and felony second-degree robbery. Rose also has a second active case for aggressive solicitation causing fear/Intimidation from a December 26, 2017, incident. He was cited and released following that misdemeanor incident and is scheduled to appear at the San Bernardino Superior Court on May 17, 2018, for an arraignment hearing.
Following his no contest plea on Monday, Rose was immediately sentenced to 180 days of weekends set to begin on May 18, 2018. Rose will be required to serve 50% of the time sentenced with credit for 8 days of actual time served. He will also be on formal probation for a period of three years. The judge ordered that Rose be released from custody at the High Desert Detention Center on Monday, April 9, 2018.
