Two men from the Los Angeles area apprehended following a robbery at an El Paseo establishment

On a Monday at approximately 5:30 p.m., deputies in Palm Desert responded to a report of grand theft at a business located on the 73000 block of El Paseo. Upon arrival, they discovered that two men had entered the business, concealed merchandise on themselves, and left without paying. The suspects then fled in a white, newer-model Lexus.

The investigation was led by the Palm Desert Special Enforcement Team (SET) and the Palm Desert Business District Team (BDT). After a brief pursuit, the suspects were apprehended at a shopping center in La Quinta at around 8:35 p.m.

The stolen items, as well as suspected stolen wine bottles and medication, were recovered by deputies from inside the suspects’ vehicle. Both men were subsequently booked into the John Benoit Detention Center for grand theft and felony evading.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information about the theft or the recovered items is encouraged to contact Deputy Hindiyeh or Deputy Botello at the Palm Desert Sheriff’s Station. They can be reached at 760-836-1600.
