Four suspects accused of armed robberies in Oakland, San Francisco
OAKLAND – Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley announces charges have been filed against four defendants accused of multiple robbery charges throughout the Bay Area, including the armed robbery of a film crew in San Francisco.
Defendants Deleon Miller, Torrion King, Teddy Williams were charged with four counts of felony second-degree robbery for robberies that occurred in both San Francisco and Alameda Counties on March 25 and March 28. King was additionally charged with two counts of felony possession of a firearm with prior conviction, and Miller with felony possession of ammunition by a prohibited person. Both King and Miller have prior felony convictions from Alameda County; King was on parole at the time of his arrest and Miller on felony probation.
Williams was additionally charged with felony possession of a machine gun and felony possession of a large-capacity magazine on March 31. Ronnell Johnson, the getaway driver in the San Francisco incident, was charged with three counts of felony second-degree robbery. Johnson has a pending robbery case in San Francisco.
On March 28, an armed robbery occurred in the city of Oakland. The victim was able to electronically track the items taken. Oakland Police Department officers were able to locate the suspect vehicle and attempted to conduct an arrest of the suspects. Miller was ultimately taken into custody.
During the Oakland robbery investigation by Oakland Police Department’s Ceasefire Unit, it was determined that Miller, King and Williams also committed the armed robbery of a Canadian film crew at San Francisco’s Twin Peaks on March 25 around 5:15 p.m., which was caught on video by a passerby. The video was circulated online both nationally and internationally. The stolen items from San Francisco were brought to Oakland after the robbery and some were recovered.
The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office was able to charge both incidents across counties in one case, in agreement with the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.
The District Attorney’s Office would like to thank the Oakland Police Department’s Ceasefire Unit for their investigation in locating and arresting these suspects, as well as the San Francisco Police Department for their cross-jurisdictional aide in this investigation.
All four defendants have been arraigned. Because this is an ongoing case, the District Attorney’s Office will not be making any further comments.
