As part of their investigation, sheriff’s detectives received information that the suspect in that incident was staying at his parent’s house in Ventura County.

With the assistance of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, deputies on Dec. 29 located the suspect at a residence in the 400 block of Old Grade Road in Oak View, Calif. Deputies arrested 24-year-old Matthew Edward Martinez of Nipomo. He was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of armed robbery with an enhancement of using a firearm.
