Last night, two men robbed the 52 Market in West LA on Santa Monica Blvd. leaving police few clues, if any at all. But it was only around 15 minutes when the two allegedly struck again in South LA. This time, their car was recognized and police connected it to one of the suspects who was on parole and under court order to wear a global positioning device. Well, that's easy--follow the signal. And so they did, soon arresting 29-year-old Chelminski Walker of Inglewood at a motel with a handgun and the car seen at the South LA robbery. Case. Closed.
