October 31, 2013
Atascadero police arrested two Monterey County men Tuesday for a carjacking at knifepoint that occurred Sunday in Paso Robles.
One of the suspects is also accused of robbing an Atascadero liquor store.
Around 7:30 p.m. Monday, a man robbed Stagecoach Liquor at 5145 El Camino Real. The suspect jumped over the counter brandishing a knife, punched the clerk several times and fled with the entire cash drawer.
Just after midnight, an officer located a white four-door vehicle parked at Motel 6 in Atascadero. The vehicle was linked to the robbery suspect and was reported stolen during the carjacking Sunday in Paso Robles.
Investigators monitored the area of the Motel 6 until 9:45 a.m. Tuesday when an officer located the two suspects in the carjacking and robbery.
Officers arrested King City resident Martin Gabriel Olmos, 32, for carjacking, robbery and a probation violation. They arrested Greenfield resident Solis Arciniega, 26, for carjacking and carrying a concealed weapon.
Olmos is in San Luis Obispo County Jail on $50,000 bail, and Arciniega is booked on $70,000 bail.
