An armed robbery at an Oakdale, Calif., McDonald's earlier this month marked the start of an 1,100-mile crime spree authorities are blaming on a teenaged Bonnie and Clyde.
Authorities said they believe the pair robbed at least six McDonald's in four states before police in Fort Hancock, Texas, finally caught them after they ran a stop sign.
Law enforcement officials identified the restaurant robbery suspect as Samuel Isidro Ramirez, 19, of Oakdale. Ramirez is in El Paso County Jail.
He was accompanied by a 16-year-old girl, also an Oakdale resident. Authorities did not release her name because of her age. An Oakdale police report described the female in the robber's car as white, with long blonde hair and a slim build, although an Arizona agency listed a girl with brown hair. Authorities are investigating whether the girl was a willing participant in the crimes.
Ramirez and the girl were once employees of the Oakdale McDonald's, Oakdale Police Chief Marty West said.
Before the two were stopped in Texas, authorities said they traced a path of crime across the West, brandishing a fake gun at drive-through windows and demanding money.
