The Kern County Sheriff's Office has arrested four people for their alleged connection to seven armed robberies. 

Michael Angel Ramon, 25, was in custody in Los Angeles for unrelated charges, but charges relating to the robberies will be added, according to a KCSO news release. Two 16-year-old boys and one 17-year old were also arrested. 

The robberies occurred over a two-week period:

  • Sept. 28 at N&H Market in the 1200 block of Pearl Street
  • Oct. 3 at the Dollar General in the 1800 block of Morning Drive

The four suspects are accused of stealing cash from cash registers, KCSO said. 

Deputies ask that anyone with information call KCSO at 861-3110 or the Secret Witness Line at 322-4040.
