Two Woodland gang members have been arrested on charges of armed robbery, according to the Woodland District Attorney’s Office.
Kevin Anthony Sloan and Joel Hernandez Rodriguez Jr. allegedly robbed a Woodland Chevron station with a handgun, according to the District Attorney’s press release. Then, later the same night, they committed a second armed robbery at a Davis Circle K Market. Sloan and Rodriguez fled the scene in a vehicle, and Davis police officers chased after them.
The two men were eventually apprehended. Both of them are active members of a criminal street gang, the release said, and both are Woodland residents.
Both men plead not guilty to all charges. They are scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing Sept. 6.
