Robbery Suspects Surrender After Standoff With Deputies

Two men suspected of robbing a Cerritos sporting goods store barricaded themselves inside a Bellflower home Tuesday but were taken into custody without incident, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said.

Set Acosta, 19, was first to surrender to deputies. Later Julio Alcantar, 18, was talked out of the house in the 15400 block of Clark Avenue and taken into custody, Deputy Boris Nikolof said.

The two men allegedly robbed a Big 5 sporting goods store in the 11300 block of 183rd Street in Cerritos and stole 16 guns, investigators said.

Sheriff's deputies said they found shotguns, high-powered rifles and handguns inside the house where the men had hidden. Both men were booked on suspicion of armed robbery and held in lieu of $20,000 bail each.
