Tustin criminal defense lawyerTwo men are wanted in the armed robbery of an Orange County Goodwill.

Police say the two men entered the store around 6:30 p.m. on March 24 and approached the register as if they were going to buy something. When the cashier opened the register for the first man, the second man pulled out a handgun and fired it into the floor. The suspects grabbed an unknown amount of cash and fled on foot down Brea Boulevard. Witnesses described the suspects as white or Hispanic of average height and heavy builds.

In California, theft becomes robbery when you take something of someone else’s using force or fear. You don’t have to have a weapon to use force or fear in a robbery.

And in California, suspects using a gun in a robbery face a special sentencing enhancement, known as the “10-20-life Use a Gun and You’re Done” law (Penal Code 12022.53 PC). This mandatory minimum means you would receive 10 years in prison for using a gun during a robbery, 20 years for firing a gun during a robbery, and 25-to-life for killing or injuring someone.
