Alleged Bowie Knife Robber Arrested

Walter Fontanilla, 26, of Murrieta, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of holding up a Temecula Jamba Juice with a knife Oct. 19.

A Murrieta man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly holding up a Temecula more than two weeks ago in Temecula.

The robbery occurred Oct. 19 at Jamba Juice at 26550 Ynez Road, according to Sgt. Keith Knotek with the Temecula Police Department.

The masked robber brandished a 10-inch Bowie knife and demanded money from two employees before leaving the business, the sergeant said in a news release.

Investigators followed up on the case, and served a warrant Wednesday on Walter Fontanilla, 26, at a home in the 23000 block of Carneros Court in Murrieta.

"They recovered evidence and subsequently arrested... Fontanilla... for armed robbery," Knotek said.

Fontanilla was booked into Southwest Detention Center on suspicion of armed robbery.

Anyone with additional information in the case was encouraged to contact Investigator Masson at the Temecula Police Department, 951-696-3000.

again... whats any of that have to do with being illegal or not? those so called 'illegal aliens' probably contribute more to america than you do. theyre taking up jobs to that 'legal americans' are too proud to do to keep this country running. and we were all here illegally sometime or another. if not you then your ancestors, unless youre a native american, then you shouldnt be talking.

Jen you're an idiot. Can't you discern from a Philipino and an obvious Mexican? Or is it white people and then "everyone else"..?

Jen...again...could you make yourself look any worse? If you look down to my post you'll see that this kid was in the same college as I am. His family does alright from what I know. This dude can do math that would probably make you cry. Why he did this? Who knows but don't make stupid speculations about his nationality...that just makes you look dumb.

Yes they should stop those people coming from everywhere else. Jen...if America didn't let people from "everywhere else" you silly butt wouldn't be in this country. Man ignorant people are just ...well ignorant!
