Two men suspected of
stealing a car in Laguna Hills and then robbing an AT&T store in
Laguna Niguel at gunpoint were arrested at a church in Irvine,
authorities said today.
Timothy Bates, 25, of Los Angeles and
Albert Brown Jr., 26, of Hillcrest allegedly stole a 1989 Toyota Camry
from outside a Laguna Hills residence, then drove to the business in the
27000 block of La Paz Road around noon where they're suspected of
stealing iPads and iPhones, said Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County
The two men were tracked to Mariners Church in the 5000 block of Newport Coast Drive in Irvine, where they were arrested, Hallock said.
The gun used in the robbery has yet to be recovered, the deputy said.—City News Service
