Police seek suspect in Pelham robbery
Pelham police are holding two suspects and are looking for a third in connection with the robbery of Camino Real Tienda on Pelham Parkway Saturday afternoon.

A store cashier and the store’s owner were among the 11 people robbed at gunpoint at about 4:30 p.m., but police are withholding many details in the case out of fear of tipping off the third suspect, according to Lt. Tommy Palmer.

A police officer happened upon the scene, but the two men being held in connection with the robbery were apprehended elsewhere, Palmer said.

According to police reports, the store was robbed of approximately $10,000 in cash, and jewelry valued at roughly $10,000.

Employees and customers at the store also were robbed of a total of $1,990 in cash. Several customers had cell phones, wallets and jewelry stolen too.

One 32-year-old woman was robbed of a pair of earrings and her eyeglasses, which had a listed value of $350.

No one was injured in the robbery, Palmer said.

“We’ve had some real good luck on this one,” he said. “We’ve got some good evidence, and if our luck holds up we should be able to get this wrapped up.”

Warrants had not been obtained against the two men in custody as of Monday afternoon.

I wonder what would have happened if a CCW had been present.

And, unfortunately, you would be arrested for violation of the Sullivan Act.

What's the Sullivan Act?

The original legislation that required a license issued by the NYC police commissioner to carry a concealed pistol in NYC. It was passed around 1911 and its original intent was to disarm the Italian and Irish immigrants in NYC.
