Two arrested for allegedly robbing Lincoln gold store

Two people from Lincoln have been arrested on suspicion of robbing a gold and coin business earlier this week.

Lincoln police arrested Justin T. Hawkins, 21, and a 16-year-old boy in connection with the robbery of Lincoln Gold and Coin, 547 Lincoln Blvd., on Tuesday afternoon. Police said the robbers, both wearing beanie hats, robbed the store and fled with undisclosed items.

Detectives reviewed video security from the store that helped them identify Hawkins and the teen as suspects. Hawkins was booked into Placer County Jail early Thursday.
