Two suspects have been arrested by Garden Grove police for allegedly robbing several convenience stores.

According to the GGPD, the suspects are Martin Philip Romo, 31, of Lakewood, and Dolly Inez Cuevas, 42, of Norwalk.


The first incident took place on Sept. 16 at 6:15 a.m. at a 7-11 store in the 12500 block of Brookhurst Street. The suspect brandished a Taser electronic stun device and took cash, cigarettes and lottery scratcher tickets before leaving.

On Sept. 19, a man – matching the description of the suspect in the earlier incident – was involved in the robbery of another 7-11 in the 11000 block of Brookhurst at 5:50 a.m. He took cash and cigarettes and left.


The third robbery too place on Sept. 30 at 6:20 a.m. at the 7-11 in the 12500 block of Nelson Street. The suspect brandished a Taser and took cash before fleeing.

GGPD detectives investigated the robberies and identified Romo as the primary suspect and eventually identified Cuevas as the getaway driver in those crimes.

On Wednesday the detectives made a traffic stop in the 6200 block of Ball Road in Cypress and arrested the pair. Romo was found to be on parole from an earlier robbery conviction, say police.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call the GGPD at (714) 741-5837.

  1. Oh Dolly, your “xoxo” tattoo over your lip looks like it’s half a mustache. .
    I thought you were a dude at first. Why? Just why?
    That, and now you do a getaway for this guy over cigarettes?
    What happens to these people along the way? So sad. Messy, and sad.
