Bailed-out Fresno robbery suspect arrested in jewelry heist

A man out on bail in connection with a pizza parlor robbery last week was re-arrested by Fresno police and booked on suspicion of robbing a jewelry store earlier this month. Two other men are sought as suspects in the jewelry robbery.

Tyrone Williams, 19, was taken into custody Wednesday morning after Street Violence Bureau officers served a warrant at his home and at the homes of the other men, Christopher Solomon, 25, and Kwesi Coker, 18.

Sgt. Dave Ramos said detectives recovered some of the jewelry taken from Prestigo Jewelry store Feb. 9 at Fashion Fair Mall.

Coker was arrested along with Williams after the Feb. 19 robbery of a Round Table pizza restaurant at Marks and Herndon avenues. Ramos said both men were bailed out of jail shortly after their arrests. In the Prestigo robbery, police said three men asked a store employee if they could inspect some jewelry on display. One of the men asked the employee if she would try on a diamond ring. The man snatched the ring as another man grabbed other jewelry. All three then ran from the store.

Coker is black, 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds. Solomon is black, 6 feet tall and weighs 165 pounds.

Anyone with information about them can contact detective Leo Martinez at (559) 621-2427, detective Manuel Romero at (559) 621-2435 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 621-2435.
