Roseville, Calif.- A fourth suspect has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery that occurred in the parking lot of a Galleria Boulevard restaurant on July 5.

Lawrence Laquontia Taylor, 19, of Pittsburg was arrested last week in Contra Costa County on a Placer County Superior Court  warrant for robbery and related charges.  He’s now in custody in the  Placer County Jail on $50,000 bail.

On the afternoon of July 5, three Sacramento men met with four other men in a Roseville restaurant parking lot to conduct a marijuana sale.  Instead of paying, the four suspects robbed the victims of their marijuana at gunpoint, and fled in a black Toyota sedan.

By early the next morning, Roseville officers had located the suspect vehicle and arrested three of the four suspects, two adult males and a 17-year-old male.  Detectives identified and obtained an arrest warrant for the fourth suspect, Lawrence Taylor,  now in custody.

Detectives are continuing to investigate the marijuana sale that led to the robbery.
