LA MIRADA >> Deputies arrested a man Thursday on suspicion of robbing the same La Mirada gas station twice over the past two weeks, officials said.
Ryan Patrick Reynolds, 22, was booked on suspicion of robbery hours after the most recent heist, which took place on Thursday morning, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robin Limon said.
Reynolds entered the store at Beach Boulevard and Rosecrans Avenue about 8:30 a.m. brandished a handgun and demanded money from the clerk, according to the lieutenant. He obtained several hundred dollars and was last seen fleeing the area on foot.
