On Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at 11:51 PM, APD Officers responded to a “Hold-Up” alarm at the 7-Eleven store at 3701 Sunset Lane, Antioch. Upon arrival, Officers contacted the clerk, an 18-year-old Brentwood man, who had just been robbed at gunpoint. The responsible stole money from the cash register and cigarettes. The responsible came behind the counter and searched the clerk, taking personal items from his pockets as well.

During the investigation, Officers identified a name and address of a possible responsible as 21 year old Raymond Greene of Antioch. Greene was later positively identified as the person who robbed the 7/11.

Then, on Wednesday, August 17, an APD Officer was dispatched to a reported armed robbery that had occurred on 8/16/16 at 8:30 PM. The victim was walking on Bellflower Drive when he was approached by Greene. Greene pointed a handgun at the victim and robbed him of his money. The victim, a 43-year-old Antioch man, knew Greene from prior contacts and positively identified him as the person who robbed him.

Greene was taken into custody without incident at his scheduled meeting with his probation officer. Greene is currently on probation for a prior robbery conviction. A search warrant was executed at Greene’s residence on Baywood Circle and evidence was recovered linking Greene to the robberies. Greene was booked into the County Jail on Robbery Charges.

No other information will be released at this time. Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call Detective Ted Chang with the Antioch Police Department at (925) 779-6876. You may also text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using key word ANTIOCH.
