Hours after a Lodi gas station was robbed early Monday, three Stockton residents were arrested in connection with four other such robberies, officials said.

The suspects do not appear to be connected to six other Lodi gas station robberies since mid-November, Lodi Police Detective Mike Manetti said.

Sandeep Singh, 20, and Ramon Anthony Lor, 18, were booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on suspicion of robbery and conspiracy. They are being held on $180,000 bail each and are scheduled to appear today in Manteca court, according to jail records.

A 17-year-old boy was arrested on the same charges and booked into juvenile hall. The San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office did not release his name because he is a minor.

Lodi's robbery happened at 12:53 a.m. Monday when a gunman entered the 76 station at 633 E. Victor Road, according to Lodi police.

A gas station was also robbed at gunpoint in Tracy. In both robberies, victims said the suspects left in a black Honda with no license plates.

At 4:40 a.m., Sheriff's deputies went to a third call, this time on Chrisman Road outside Tracy city limits. As in the others, the suspect was described as a Hispanic male. The store's owner arrived and reviewed surveillance video, which showed a similar description.

Investigators issued a bulletin to all area law enforcement agencies, listing the vehicle and the suspect's physical description and clothing.

At 5:30 a.m., Ripon police officers stopped a vehicle matching that description at Highway 99 and Acacia Avenue. They detained three people in the car until deputies arrived.

Inside the car, investigators found a gun, cash and stolen property, the Sheriff's Office said in a news release.

The three arrested are suspected in the three San Joaquin County robberies, as well as one each in Modesto and Livermore.

Lodi's previous gas station robberies remain under investigation. Police have linked a couple of those to the same suspects, Manetti said, but no arrests have been made.

    I feel that 17 is old enough to be tried as an ADULT! Too many crimes are committed by thugs under the age of 18 knowing NOTHING will really happen to them!
