Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Two individuals have been apprehended in connection with a series of armed robberies that have plagued the Salem area. The suspects have been identified as 19-year-old Nestor Gabriel Hernandez-Juarez, a resident of Salem, and a 17-year-old whose identity has not been disclosed to the public.

Law enforcement agencies, including the Salem Police Department, Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and Oregon State Police, collaborated in a seamless interagency operation to apprehend the suspects without any untoward incidents.

Over a span of three weeks, commencing on November 17th, a string of armed robberies occurred at six different establishments. In each instance, the perpetrators brandished firearms and demanded money from the employees.

Among the six robberies, four took place within the city limits of Salem, while the remaining two occurred outside the jurisdiction of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives from both jurisdictions diligently worked together to identify the culprits responsible for these crimes. In a highly coordinated effort on Monday, search warrants were simultaneously executed at three separate locations in Salem, leading to the subsequent arrests of the suspects.

During the search, investigators uncovered crucial evidence linking the suspects to the robberies. Among the items seized were three handguns, two of which were utilized during the commission of the crimes.

Hernandez-Juarez has been remanded to the Marion County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday at the Marion County Circuit Court Annex. He faces multiple charges, including four counts of first-degree robbery, four counts of unlawful use of a weapon, and four counts of menacing.

The 17-year-old suspect, being a minor, is being held at the Marion County Juvenile Department. He is facing six counts of first-degree robbery, six counts of unlawful use of a weapon, and six counts of menacing.

Due to legal considerations surrounding minors involved in criminal investigations, the Salem Police Department has refrained from disclosing any further details about the juvenile suspect.

As the investigation continues, no additional information can be provided at this time. Authorities remain committed to ensuring the safety and security of the Salem community, and will diligently pursue justice for the victims of these armed robberies.
