Police: As masked men steal, victim asks for help online

Three men and a teenager, who police say entered a home Tuesday through an unlocked door and took computers, a TV and jewelry, have been arrested.

Tucson police Sgt. Fabian Pacheco identified the suspects, who were booked in Pima County Jail on suspicion of armed robbery, kidnapping and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, as Diamond J. Taylor, 20; Ronnie J. Anderson, 25 and Albert Bell III, 24. The fourth is 17 and the Tucson Citizen is not naming him because of his age.

Pacheco said the suspects wore masks; one had a shotgun.

One of the victims was online with a friend when the incident took place around noon and she told him to call police. The suspects ransacked the apartment, and fled in a Ford Expedition, Pacheco said.

Officers from Operations Division West stopped the vehicle soon after and the four fled. Police and two K-9 dogs captured them, he said.

All property from the home in the 1200 block of East Grant Road was recovered he said.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
