A neighbor called the police as another neighbor observed the robbers run to a vehicle, which he described to Antioch Police. An officer familiar with the suspect vehicle went to the last known address associated with the vehicle: 2201 Sycamore Drive, the site of an apartment complex. Upon arrival, the officer located the suspect vehicle in a carport.
Three suspects were removed from the car and arrested: 21-year-old Kirk Davis, a 17-year-old male and a 16-year-old female. A loaded handgun, stolen property and other evidence were found in the car. The victim identified the three suspects.
Officers made contact with a fourth subject, 18-year-old Louis Davis, in the apartment associated with the robbery suspects. A probation search was conducted and a loaded assault rifle was discovered. The fourth subject was also arrested. Both juveniles were transported to the Contra Costa Juvenile Hall, and both adults were booked at the Martinez Detention Facility on robbery and related weapon charges.
Jan. 6 The Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office filed charges against 29-year-old Maurice Green for the Oct. 11, 2007 murder of 28-year-old Antioch resident Jose Victor Sanchez.

The same night of the robbery, Green was caught a short distance away with Sanchez’s credit cards in his pocket. Green stated he had just bought the credit cards.
