Three subjects arrested for robbery in Akron

On March 31st, 2011 at approximately 1908 hours, the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from the Casey’s General Store in Akron, Iowa that they had been robbed.  The clerk advised that two (2) Hispanic males robbed her and took an undetermined amount of cash.  The clerk advised that the subjects ran from the business and got into a vehicle and fled the scene.

A private citizen observed what had happened and followed the vehicle east out of Akron, Iowa and then the vehicle continued south on county road K-13.  Once they reached the intersection, the vehicle attempted to make a left turn onto county road C-38 and lost control and went into the south ditch.  At that time, three subjects fled from the vehicle but were apprehended by Plymouth County Deputies and Akron Police Department.  A fourth subject fled the scene in Akron, Iowa and still has not been found.

The three (3) subjects that were apprehended are all juveniles:

1.      Arturo Perez (16)
         1522 Jones Street
         Sioux City, Iowa

2.      Fernando Perez (16)
         719 28th Street
         Sioux City, Iowa

3.      Carolina Perez (15)
         719 28th Street
         Sioux City, Iowa


All of these subjects were charged with Robbery in the Second Degree, a Class C Felony.  Carolina Perez was transported to the YES Center in Cherokee, Iowa and Arturo and Fernando Perez remain in custody at the Plymouth County Jail.

A fourth subject is still at large at this time.

The Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office and the Akron Police Department were assisted by the Hinton Police Department, Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa State Patrol.
