Police Nab ‘Bonnie And Clyde’ Who Attempted To Rob An EP McDonald’s

EL PASO, Texas –Hudspeth County sheriff’s deputies caught a teenage couple who allegedly went on a four-state crime spree, including attempted robbery of two fast food restaurants in El Paso and another in Las Cruces, El Paso County Sheriff’s officials said Thursday.

Samuel Isidro Ramirez, 19, of Oakdale, California, was arrested in Fort Hancock. A 16-year-old girl, also an Oakdale resident, accompanied Ramirez, though she was not taken into custody. It is unknown whether the girl was a willing participant in the crimes.

Police say the couple robbed at least six McDonald’s restaurants in four states. According to the Modesto (Calif.) Bee newspaper, the spree started with an armed robbery at an Oakdale McDonald’s.

According to the article, police said the couple robbed a McDonald’s in Deming, New Mexico, on Aug. 9. Police say that the couple attempted two robberies in El Paso a few hours later on Aug. 9, one at a Jack In the Box and one at a McDonald’s.

They also allegedly robbed a McDonald’s in Las Cruces, though police could not say exactly when that happened.

Three hours after the attempted robbery of the El Paso McDonald’s, Hudspeth County sheriff’s deputies pulled over the car the pair was riding in for running a stop sign, officials said.

Sheriff’s deputies ran the girl’s name and date of birth through their database and discovered she was a runaway, and Ramirez came up as under investigation for a possible kidnapping.

The pair was taken into custody, and then Hudspeth County deputies discovered that El Paso police had issued a statewide alert for suspects matching their description, officials said.

Ramirez was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery and is currently in the El Paso County Jail. The girl was not taken into custody.
