Three plead not guilty in robbery, Cal State Fullerton lockdown
Damine Banks, 30, Jerome Allen, 23, and Traevon Vidaud, 24, appeared in a Riverside County courtroom Thursday morning. Authorities believe the men were involved in a jewelry and pawn shop robbery in Moreno Valley on Dec. 12, where an employee was shot in the process.
The men fled in a dark Lexus, authorities said, sparking a pursuit that spanned four counties.
They stopped at Cal State Fullerton, where two men were captured. Two others fled on foot, prompting a seven-hour lockdown at the university.
A fourth suspect, Roosevelt Fernandez, 26, was arrested Dec. 26 and will be charged separately.
Police were still searching for a fifth person. Anyone with information is asked to call the Moreno Valley Police Department at (951) 486-6710.
Banks, Allen and Vidaud are due back in court Jan. 14.
