Sounds suspicious. Terra Bella isn't known for a lot of cash businesses.

sounds like they might know of each other or a friend of a friend said something about this to a friend of another friend. And who pays cash these days.....?

Sounds like he wasn't able to come up with the rent and decided to fabricate a story to help buy him some time...but just in case, did he notice if one of the robbers was carrying an iPhone?

I want to know if the robbers had an iPhone as well.... think there might be a connection? What is going on in this city? I am starting to think I might look for a safer city to live in... if there is one!

Good to hear there was an arrest! Score another one for the good guys.

FN wrote he/she is looking for a safer city to live in.

Overall in the US, violent crime is lowest in New England and highest in the South, with California somewhere in between: Web Link

According to Mountain View PD, the number of robberies has been roughly constant the last couple of years: Web Link

According to FBI's statistics, violent crime per capita in Mountain View has fallen every year since 1997: Web Link

2% of the population and 90% of the violent crime. Thanks guys, we can always count on you people to never change.

great police work here in Mtn. View. I hope that the other person at large is apprehended...and they both do the time for the crime.
Perhaps this business in Terra Bella is not a cash business. But the person had that amount of cash on him to pay his rent. Simple enough.
