Armed men rob Nipomo man

July 3, 2018

Two Santa Maria men allegedly robbed a Nipomo resident at knifepoint Sunday night, prompting a search of the area that involved a helicopter and a K-9.

At about 10:30 p.m., the victim who lives on the 1800 block of Louise Lane called 9-1-1 to report they had been robbed at knifepoint, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office. The caller gave the sheriff’s department a description of the suspects and their vehicle to dispatchers.

Within 10 minutes, deputies spotted a vehicle matching the victim’s description in the area of Riverside Drive and Division Street in Nipomo. The suspects tried to flee, but their vehicle got stuck in a field. The suspects then got out of the car and fled by foot.

Deputies immediately apprehended one of the men. Shortly afterwards, after receiving help from a CHP helicopter and a sheriff’s K-9, deputies caught the other suspect.

Authorities booked Sergio Arturo Flores, 18, and Wilson Ricardo Cortez, 20, into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on felony robbery charges. Flores was also charged with resisting an officer.

Deputies recovered the property that the suspects allegedly stole. An investigation into the case is ongoing.

Investigators request that anyone who has further information about the case call the sheriff’s office at (805) 781-4550 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 543-TIPS.


Correction, got a bit mixed up on this story versus the Grover Beach story. But most of my comment stands. There are different tribes in America these days. I’m proud to be part of the traditional American tribe.


“Butt-hurt” is primarily a military term meaning that someone is unreasonably offended by a situation or circumstances which they usually brought on themselves. Since his user name is horse_soldier, I’m going to guess that he is or was 19-series, or Cavalry, for those who don’t know MOS codes. Most of us military folks don’t find assaults on police by tweaked-out losers to be subjects of levity. Other people apparently do.

I want your s*#t! Give it to me.


Hmmm.. Are they legally here? If not send them back to Mexico, they will sell them for body parts!


Damn! I wonder if they broke the deputies away from a code J.D.-750(m)(l) at the local liquor store parking lot? Or from the local donut shop offerin’ a cop special of “Morgan’s and Maple Bars”. They just can’t get a frickin’ [drinkin’] break, can they?


Dude your butt hurt is showing.


What are implying horse_soldier? That I’ve been butt fricked or some other homophobe suggestion?

Dude, your [a] horse’s ass is not only showing, it reeks!


Your response proves my point, always negative and nasty.

I feel sorry for you having to haul around that huge chip on your shoulder.

Feel better, life is short.


What of your response to me, was that positive, using a homophobe slur isn’t nasty?

I do “feel better”, all the frickin’ time! I feel better that I can hunt-and-peck out my frustrations, your “huge chip”, on a inanimate object like this keyboard rather then poundin’ on some empty cranium cavity that can’t even recognize it best represents what it accuses others of. Now that’s feelin’ much, much better!

Yea, life is short! You got that right anyway… Too short to ignore the opportunity of a little levity, which my post was meant for, at the expense of a cop…


horse_soldier, Everyone Comment on the issues and events not on the other users.

This should be clear to everyone by now, no excuses.
