    • January 13, 2024

    A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy’s trip to a Carson convenience store led to a surprise foiled robbery early Saturday morning, as the deputy discovered a group of suspects in the midst of an apparent hold-up.

    As the deputy walked into the store as a customer, he saw two masked men behind the counter, one with a knife and the other holding what appeared to be a firearm, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials said.

    The deputy reportedly drew his gun, radioed for other deputies and took four suspects into custody.

    It turned out that one of the men behind the counter had been holding a replica that looked like an actual firearm, authorities said.

    The attempted robbery occurred in the early morning hours at a store at the intersection of Victoria Street and Avalon Boulevard.

    Surveillance footage obtained by KTLA showed the would-be robbers enter the store and immediately hop over the counter into the area where the clerk was standing.
