ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Authorities have announced the arrest of two suspects wanted in connection with a Victorville Home Depot robbery in July.
The suspects, Delvontay Harris, 21, of Adelanto and Courtney Williams, 24, of Victorville, were arrested on August 24, 2018, at a residence in the 10900 block of Everest Street.
Victorville Police were actively searching for three suspects after they managed to leave a Victorville Home Depot store in the 125600 block of Roy Rogers Drive with unpaid merchandise on July 17, 2018, officials said.
According to a sheriff’s news release, “store employees confronted a male and two females as they were exiting the business, after noticing one of the females was carrying merchandise that had not been paid for.”
The male suspect, later identified as Delvontay Harris, brandished a handgun at the employees while some of the stolen merchandise was dropped and all three suspects fled the location in a newer model black Jeep with yellow paper plates.
Officials continued the investigation and on August 24, 2018, Victorville Police Department’s Gang Enforcement Team and the Detective Bureau located Harris and Williams as they drove away from a residence in Adelanto, in a black Jeep Cherokee.
“A search warrant was served at the residence and five loaded firearms were recovered. A records check revealed one of the firearms had been reported stolen in Oklahoma,” stated a news release.
Sheriff’s Spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez told Victor Valley News, the third female suspect was also identified and located, however, no charges were filed against her.
Harris and Williams were arrested and booked at the High Desert Detention Center for robbery. Both are scheduled to appear in Victorville Superior Court on August 28, 2018.
