Arthur Charles Moses, 21, of Los Angeles and Tisha Campbell, 23, of Los Angeles were booked on suspicion of crimes including robbery, possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools following their 12:15 a.m. arrest in the 900 block of Huntington Drive, San Marino police Sgt.

A witnesses called police to report seeing a 2015 Nissan Altima with paper license plates driving slowly through an alleyway with it’s brights on, he said. Officers responded and spoke with the driver, Campbell, and her passenger, Moses, “who stated they were lost,” the sergeant said.
“Upon further investigation, black ski masks, gloves and a crowbar were located under the passenger seat of the vehicle,” Tebbetts said. “Additionally, checkbooks and other property were located inside the vehicle that neither person could explain.”
Police soon learned the person whose name was printed on a checkbook found inside the car had been the victim of a recent robbery in San Bernardino County, police said.
