A Patterson man reportedly turned himself in to Patterson Police Services on Jan. 31 for a Jan. 27 robbery of the La Perla Tapatia Market, 201 S. El Circulo Ave.

The man, Shawn Thomas Anderson, 31, was arrested on suspicion of robbery, Detective Mike Fisher stated in a release Friday, Feb. 8.

According to the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office Anderson plead guilty to the robbery Friday, Feb. 8. He received 365 days in jail and three years probation.

Surveillance tapes from the store show a man entering at about 8 p.m. Jan. 27 before demanding money and threatening a female clerk with a tire iron, according to Fisher. The robber allegedly left the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

A missing-persons report filed in the days following the robbery led detectives to Anderson.

Detectives later searched Anderson’s vehicle and found evidence of his involvement, according to Fisher. However, he did not indicate what that evidence was.

Glad to see Patterson Police are on top of things.

I for one will be praying your police chief runs for Sheriff.

Stanislaus County is rated one of the worst places in the United States, more specifically Modesto. Patterson is doing a great job to better our County.

You can seek truth about our Sheriff and what he believes in by reading the following link: He will not listen to 16 of our peers on a Grand Jury and there are several Grand Jury Reports against him.
