One man is in jail and another is on the run following a home invasion robbery in Paso Robles on Monday evening.

Shortly after 8 p.m., a caller reported that two men forced a family at gunpoint into an apartment at the Dry Creek Apartment complex. The men then robbed the family members.

Police raced to the scene, but both suspects had fled prior to their arrival.

Shortly afterwards, 19-year-old Angel Chavez, attempted to use one of the victim’s credit cards at Walmart, according to surveillance footage.

During their investigation, officers identified two suspects: Chavez and 33-year-old Leonel Herrejon Sanchez, both of Paso Robles.

On Wednesday, a patrol officer spotted Chavez near the intersection of 28th and Park streets. The officer arrested Chavez and then booked him in the San Luis Obispo County Jail and booked on charges of robbery, kidnapping, burglary and conspiracy.

Investigators are still looking for Sanchez, who is considered armed and dangerous. They are asking anyone with information regarding his whereabouts to call the Paso Robles Police Department at (805) 237-6464.

As someone who served as EMS, I find some Paso PD as good, the Sherriff saying they are bad, having others say the Sherriff and pd are bad, and the local Court is insane. I’d say our whole legal system in Slo county of all race, religions, and political affiliation are 50 percent psychopaths. including judges who ignore supreme court law. We need chatgpt to replace our legal system; bypass religion and human bias; humans are sleep deprived, constipated, angry, menopausal, abused, insane. We need robots. Now humans say robots are bad. Really; no, open source is God. Humans are vile, and loving chimps. The good resonate, but evil is so so relevant. And lives are ruined.

If Sanchez is “armed and dangerous,” why wait three days to notify the public?

Because it is the extremely incompliant, cowardly, Paso Robles Police.

Some, but not all are. Know your rights.

Because the only thing PRPD is good at is writing tickets.

Don’t ride dirty, and if you do, know your rights.
