Great job tracking down this scum bag. Dumb ba$tard didn’t even have enough sense to get out of town for a while. I am sure the rest of the dufus gang gets caught soon.

5 anon June 21, 2014 at 11:57 AM

He just graduated from Olympic High so at least he’s a smart criminal.

6 Wendy June 21, 2014 at 11:59 AM

This fellow comes into my work ALL of the time! He’s weird, makes me nervous as hell, always looks like he’s up to something, and last week he asked me if I had any Visine behind the counter (like WHY would I have that?) and always acts like he is HIGH out of his mind!!! Glad I won’t have to worry about seeing him soon… I hope!

Impressed with Pleasant Hill PD. They always catch the theives fast.
Remember the home invasion suspect they caught in Antioch. Now this kid.
I think it is because it is a small city.

diversity is our strength !!

9 Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 21, 2014 at 12:20 PM

I hope this doesnt prevent us from embracing our Section 8 community, and the rich diversity they bring us!

10 anon June 21, 2014 at 12:35 PM

Nice job don’t forget this guy pistol whipped an innocent person. Please make sure he is put away for good along with his scum friend.

13 Noj June 21, 2014 at 1:05 PM

14 Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 21, 2014 at 1:28 PM

@Lost and Happy,#11: you are entitled to your opinion. Having said that, please work on your spelling.

15 Michelle June 21, 2014 at 1:40 PM

Great job on catching that fool, keep up the good work snd make our city safe.

16 Anon June 21, 2014 at 1:56 PM

Oh no, no, it could not have been me, I was working at the quickie mart!

17 ANNON June 21, 2014 at 1:58 PM

Good job PHPD! Keep on putting these scum bags behind bars and don’t forget the loose the key!

18 Shirley Wilson June 21, 2014 at 2:12 PM

Fast work, thank you to the Pleasant Hill police department.

19 saventheworld June 21, 2014 at 2:36 PM

Set up a big stage in downtown Pleasant Hill and shoot this POS between the eyes and his little gang banging boyfriends will not do it next time.

20 Shulla June 21, 2014 at 2:36 PM

What a freak. Obviously his hair-care involves a salad bowl. Hope the victim recovers soon.

21 camelbackicarus June 21, 2014 at 2:52 PM

Wow. Went to high school with this kid. Who would have known he wanted to try his hand at being a little thug right next door to my house. Thanks for putting a stop to this. I can’t believe all the crime increases around here.

22 Be very concerned... June 21, 2014 at 3:10 PM

Used to be a time that criminals worked outside of their neighborhoods snd cities. But when they are bold enough to victimize people in the very neighborhoods and streets they live on, it should cause great alarm.

23 Cartman June 21, 2014 at 3:29 PM

Boil him.

24 mutts June 21, 2014 at 4:27 PM

Yes, boil him. Tar and feathers, too.

25 Anon... June 21, 2014 at 4:50 PM

He robbed someone in the very town in which he lives!? What a POS! Get the F out!

26 practical application June 21, 2014 at 5:24 PM

I know he’s not Mexican but they should deport his ass there just to inconvenience him lol

27 Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 21, 2014 at 6:14 PM

more importantly, was anyone offended during the commission of this crime? that is what the libs want to know.

28 TJ June 21, 2014 at 6:19 PM

Remind me again how all the thieves come from over the hill in Antioch/Pittsburg….. oh ya thats right – this ones from Pleasant Hill…… Pleasant Hill isn’t so perfect after all is it?

29 joe citizen June 21, 2014 at 6:22 PM

Just keep letting em into the country,would ya?

30 Anon but lmao June 21, 2014 at 6:27 PM

This is rediculous funny.. I went to high school with him n just new it was a matter of time till he did something… stupid.. didn’t expect it to be this stupid.. buut then again it’s Ramesh..

31 The saddest part... June 21, 2014 at 6:38 PM

…is that he’s probably already back out on the street. His momma bailed him out, they gave him a trial date six months from now, and then he’ll probably be sentenced to time served, plus six months probation. He’ll show up for the first couple of meetings with his probation officer, than just stop going. Nobody will care enough to find him and arrest him for the probation violation, and we’ll soon see his ugly mug on bank video cameras following armed bank robberies. Just another zit on society’s behind.

32 Bob the Repairman June 21, 2014 at 6:52 PM

If I had a son, he’d be just like this guy!!! — B.H.O.

33 Yhe Phantom June 21, 2014 at 7:13 PM

#32 Bob the Repairman

If you had a son, he’d look more like Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire…

Not a good thing.

Good police work and alert witness…looks like a little harmless grass has whistled this one right into jail.

He needs empathy training that involves being viciously attacked by someone with a firearm.

34 J June 21, 2014 at 7:34 PM

Good catch

35 bunny June 21, 2014 at 10:50 PM

Glad the PHPD got him. Congrats to them. Now, we need his friend. He’ll probably cough up the identity any time now. Wish we had some of our dopes here in Concord arrested more often, although, the police here are sorely tried by the volume of stupidity.Speaking of stupidity, there was a grass fire set behind my group of apartments in Concord this afternoon. No source of ignition found. I guess we’ll be putting up those fences in various parts of the community that we’ve been talking about.

36 slagheap June 21, 2014 at 10:54 PM

excellent job, officers!

37 cat June 21, 2014 at 11:41 PM

LOL… he literally just graduated……………. thats soo sad…….

38 funny June 22, 2014 at 8:14 AM

This is soo funny i went to school with him he is a thief

39 Cuzzzzzzz...... June 22, 2014 at 9:10 AM

He is probably back out on the streets at this moment….Remember kiddies this is California where criminals have more rights than the victim or any law abiding citizen

40 He has brought great shame and humiliation upon his family June 22, 2014 at 3:04 PM

Their hatred will be greater than any punishment we can administer. Generations of honor have been nullified by his criminal behavior.

41 nobody June 22, 2014 at 3:17 PM

your all a pos ahahaha you don’t even know the dude ,obviously hes tryna get some money. hes been out on the strreets living in his car. desperate needs calls for desperate measures. was a stupid mistake that he’ll have to pay for but hes still a good person that you know nothing about.

42 @ Nobody June 22, 2014 at 3:42 PM

Good to know, next time I need money, I can pistol-whip you for it, and “still be a good person.” Excellent news!

43 Cowellian June 22, 2014 at 4:03 PM

Stupid mistake describes your writing. Criminal describes his behavior. Good people don’t rob other people.

44 Michelle June 22, 2014 at 5:45 PM

Are you sure he doesn’t have hid own money and is doing it for the hell of it. Carry on, I say.

45 saventheworld June 22, 2014 at 5:48 PM

To #40. Apples don’t fall far from the tree

46 Joel Swett June 22, 2014 at 9:24 PM

Yeah, if only we could live in a homogenous, white community. I’m sure there would be no crime at all.

47 anon June 23, 2014 at 7:02 AM

@46 Are you saying that’s the only kind of homogeneous community that would be crime-free?

48 Joel Swett June 23, 2014 at 10:30 AM

No, an all-conservative community would be crime-free, too.

49 mika June 25, 2014 at 8:30 AM

He went to college park high school before Olympic. See, all the bad kids don’t always come from Mt diablo or YV!

50 Iron Maiden June 25, 2014 at 8:58 AM

Only 18, they really need some after school programs around.

51 anon June 25, 2014 at 9:25 AM

#41 That is such faulty reasoning. Most criminals are not evil 100% of the time. Germany loved Hitler and many people still do. When someone is tested that proves what their moral character is. I’d hate to see this world if everyone who ever needed money went and did what he did and still be considered ‘good’.
