2 men suspected of robbing a Redlands gas station earlier this month were arrested by Riverside Co Sheriff’s deputies

Men arrested in Moreno Valley suspected in Redlands robbery

Two men suspected of holding up a Redlands gas station at gunpoint earlier this month were arrested following a similar robbery last week in Moreno Valley.

Shortly after 4 a.m. Friday, March 11, two men armed with handguns walked into the 76 gas station at 1075 Parkford Drive, forced the clerk into a back room and escaped with cash and cigarettes.

On March 17, Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 22-year-old Alfonso Hall and 29-year-old Robert Renteria, both of Moreno Valley, following an armed robbery at a Moreno Valley hotel.

Riverside investigators say Hall was involved in up to 20 armed robberies in Riverside and San Bernardino counties, including the Redlands robbery. Renteria was identified as the second suspect in the Redlands holdup. The guns used in the Redlands robbery were also recovered.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office is working with the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office to file charges in the San Bernardino County robberies.
