Carl's Jr. robbery could result in weapons charges

Roseville residents may have heard by now about the robbery that occurred late last month at a local Carl's Jr. restaurant. Authorities were not initially able to make an arrest after the incident in which the restaurant's employees allege that two men came into the business and locked them in a freezer along with a customer.

It appears the two men, one of whom was allegedly armed with a gun, the other with a knife, were able to take the restaurant's money as well as the customer's wallet and cell phone. They fled the scene before police could arrive. There were no reports of injuries from the incident. The individuals who were locked in the freezer were able to get out after a short amount of time.

The Roseville Police Department immediately began a manhunt for the two suspects, describing them as both being in their 20's, one possibly black or Hispanic and the other possibly white or Hispanic.

If the authorities are able to track down these alleged armed robbers, the suspects will likely face weapons charges. Most California residents probably know that our state has a particularly strict gun control policy. A weapons charge alone could carry significant penalties, including jail, prison, fines and probation. The alleged suspects are lucky that no one was harmed in the incident; otherwise they could be looking at even more serious charges.

Facing a weapons charge in California is a serious matter. Anyone arrested in association with a weapons charge, even a legitimate gun owner, can expect the prosecution to zealously pursue the maximum allowable punishment. In those cases, the defense team's strategy will be crucial to the outcome of the case.
