The Kern County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man on suspicion of a Monday morning robbery in Wasco in the 2100 block of Highway 46.

Brandon King, 34, of Bakersfield was arrested on suspicion of robbery and wearing a mask for an unlawful purpose, according to KCSO. King was booked into the Kern County Jail.

Around 4:50 a.m., deputies were dispatched to a robbery. A victim reported a male subject wearing a ski-style mask entered the business and demanded money. The suspect left the store after taking an item, KCSO said in a release. A short time later, King was located and detained at another nearby business without resistance. A ski-style mask was located near where King was taken into custody.

KCSO encourages anyone with additional information regarding this investigation to call 861-3110 or the Secret Witness line at 322-4040.
