Quick Pinch Robber Nabbed by Police

Metro Police caught a man suspected of a series of robberies as he tried to hold up a business Monday night.

Laron Johnson attempted to rob a business in the 4500 block of North Rancho Drive around 6 p.m. Monday. Patrol officers arrived quickly, according to police officials, and set up a perimeter. After a short foot chase, Johnson was taken into custody without incident.

Johnson is suspected of a number of “quick pinch” robberies of convenience stores between the hours of 2-6 a.m. The crimes began in March and at least nine incidents are suspected to have occurred in that time.

The suspect entered armed with a gun drawn, walked behind the counter, pointed the gun at the clerk and demanded money. When the clerk complied, the suspect fled the scene.
