SAN FRANCISCO—The San Francisco Police Department arrested a suspect for his role in two armed robberies that occurred at a sandwich shop on the 2000 block of Van Ness Avenue. According to the SFPD website, on June 24, at approximately 11:20 p.m. officers assigned to the Northern Station responded to a robbery. Employees informed the police that the suspect, Jarrod Calvert, 42, of Santa Rosa, was armed with a gun when the store was robbed.

On June 27 at approximately 7:45 a.m., officers responded to a robbery call at a business on the 1600 block of Vallejo Street. An employee informed the officers that Calvert entered the business holding a gun and demanded cash. He pulled the victim’s hooded sweatshirt over her head prior to fleeing with the money.

Using information provided by victims and witnesses (including the description of the suspect’s vehicle), investigators from the SFPD Robbery Detail conducted an investigation that led to the identity of the Calvert.  A crime bulletin was published and provided to local law enforcement partners. On June 30 at approximately 12:45 a.m., Calvert was taken into custody by a Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputy. The deputy saw Calvert drive in to a gas station on the 16000 block of Main Street in Guerneville and spotted his vehicle from the crime bulletin.

Calvert’s maroon Toyota minivan was impounded and he was later booked into the San Francisco County Jail on two counts of robbery. He was released on his own recognizance on July 3, and was arrested for a new robbery offense in Santa Rosa that occurred on Monday, July 9.

The SFPD has indicated that this case is still under investigation. Anyone with details on any of the incidents is asked to contact the San Francisco Police Department’s 24 hour tip line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.
