ADELANTO, Calif. – Authorities have arrested a teen in connection with with robbing victims after luring them into residential areas.
Terral Hall, 18, was arrested Tuesday after an incident occurred about 12:05 p.m. in the 185000 block of Casaba Road, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. Hall was booked at High Desert Detention Center and is being held in lieu of $300,000 bail.
Authorities are attempting to identify a second suspect described as a Hispanic male believed to be in his early 20s.
According to the victims, they went to the location to purchase a vehicle and parked their car on Casaba Road. The suspects, one later identified as Terral Hall, sent a text to the victims to get out of their car and come to the front door of the residence. When the victims exited their vehicle, Hall and a Hispanic male adult approached the victims, brandishing handguns. The suspects demanded money from the victims and one suspect fired a single round into the air. Once the suspects were given the money, they fled the location on foot. There is no evidence that shows any homeowner on Casaba Road is involved in the crime.
This is the third strong arm robbery committed in this immediate area. In each robbery, the suspects used the same scenario to get the victims to come to the area with cash. During the investigation, Deputy Larry Torres was able to identify Terral Hall as one of the suspects.
Hall’s photo is being released because it is believed there could be additional victims who have been too scared, up to this point, to come forward. We are also trying to identify the Hispanic male adult responsible for committing these crimes.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact Deputy L. Torres at Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station 760-552-6800. Callers can remain anonymous and contact We-Tip at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463) or www.wetip.com.
