OPD Makes Arrests Connected to ATM Robberies and Carjacking Series

Due to the hard work and relentless efforts of the Oakland Police Department (OPD), four individuals in connection with numerous armed robberies and carjackings in Oakland, have been arrested. For the last two months, officers from OPD’s Patrol Division, Area 3 Community Resource Section, Violent Crime Operations Center (VCOC), Ceasefire Section, and Robbery Division, worked collaboratively to take these armed and dangerous individuals off the streets.

On March 8, 2023, Ceasefire and VCOC units located a vehicle wanted in connection with a carjacking. With careful consideration and coordination, the officers devised a plan to safely take the occupants of the carjacked vehicle into custody.

Officers recovered two firearms from the individuals, both with an attachment making the firearm fully automatic. Additionally, officers recovered an assault rifle, as well as a large capacity magazine.

Three of the individuals arrested are juveniles, and one is an adult. The group is believed to be connected to seven armed robberies, including three at an ATM, one at a bank, and multiple carjackings. The cases will be presented to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for charging.

In an effort to keep our community safe, please consider the following safety tips.

Reduce Your Risk:
• Always remain vigilant of your surroundings.
• Ensure you are not being followed (to/from the bank, your vehicle, and/or residence).
• Do not engage with the suspect(s).

OPD’S Commitment:
• Collaborate with banks to strengthen their use of privatized security, and crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED).
• Deploy additional officers in areas impacted by the spike in armed robberies.
• Conduct operations to apprehend and arrest those committing violent crimes.
