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.

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

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.
