A recent crime spree in Norwalk, East Los Angeles and Burbank has resulted in two suspects being charged with six counts of felony robbery and burglary.

Suspects Alfredo Gutierrez and Cynthia Olguin were arraigned at the Bellflower Superior Court last Friday, April 5.

Both Gutierrez, 44, from Boyle Heights, and Olguin, 31, from Artesia, were remanded back in custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department after their court appearance and both are being held with bail amounts in excess of $400,000.

According to Detective Sergeant Andy Ruiz of the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station, the crime spree began with a shoplifting burglary incident on March 18 at the Norwalk “Food 4 Less” grocery store on the 10900 block of Imperial Highway.

Then on March 24 the crime wave became more aggressive when the two alleged suspects began conducting armed robberies throughout the Norwalk and East Los Angeles area. An “AM/PM” Gas Station on the 13300 block of Rosecrans Avenue in Norwalk was robbed at gunpoint, followed by robberies of a “7-11” in Commerce; a discount cigarette store in Burbank and ending with the March 31, 2013 robbery of the Chevron Station at 10900 Alondra Boulevard.

Law enforcement officials determined that the Gutierrez and Olguin were living out of a local motel in Norwalk where they were apprehended.
