crime¬†sceneSANTEE, Calif. — A 21-year-old man was behind bars today for allegedly robbing a Santee liquor store at gunpoint, authorities said.

The events that led to Victor Gomez being booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of robbery began shortly after 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, when the Fanita Liquor Store at 8663 Fanita Drive was held up by a handgun-wielding man masking his face with a bandana, according to sheriff’s Sgt. David Hale.

Deputies dispatched to investigate found Gomez about three blocks south, identified him as a suspect and arrested him, Hale said.

    Your comment is funny. What do you mean by only in klantee? It was another Mexican robbing a liquor store. Normally happens everywhere but in Santee. The only difference is this moron was caught by the Santee Sheriff deputy. I say good job Sheriff’s Department. Keep up the good work.
