Man arrested for robbery of cash, marijuana


Police arrested a Mountain View man on suspicion of robbing a 29-year-old Sunnyvale resident on Jan. 7, in the 600 block of Tyrella Ave.

According to Sgt. Saul Jaeger, public information officer with the Mountain View Police Department, the suspect pulled a pellet gun and held it by his side during what may have been a drug deal gone bad with the Sunnyvale man.

Police apprehended Jerome Love, a 37-year-old local man, near the location of a reported robbery, around 10:30 p.m. that night, Jaeger said.

Love was accused of stealing cash, various small bags and marijuana from the Sunnyvale man.

Love was booked into jail for robbery and destroying the Sunnyvale man's cell phone, in an attempt to prevent him from calling for help.

The victim was not arrested, although he allegedly had been in possession of the marijuana prior to the robbery. "He previously possessed it, but he didn't possess it at the time" of the encounter with police, Jaeger said.
