San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested the man they say is responsible for an attempted robbery at the Chevron gas station in Templeton last week.
Anthony Espinoza, 22, was taken into custody Saturday at a home in the 1800 block of Park Street in Paso Robles and booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of attempted robbery.
Sheriff’s officials say on Friday, Espinoza tried to steal alcohol from the gas station and threatened the owner by indicating he had a weapon, then fled the scene.
Surveillance photos helped investigators quickly identify Espinoza as the suspect.
He is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.
