Thanks to RapidDNA and fast-acting Investigators a second-degree robbery suspect is behind bars
Thanks to RapidDNA and fast-acting Investigators a second-degree robbery suspect is behind bars! Last Wednesday, March 21 at around 6:30 a.m. Travis Allard entered Pink Ribbon Donuts in Mission Viejo. He ordered two donuts from the counter before pulling out a knife and demanding cash from the register. Once he grabbed the cash, he quickly fled the scene.
Later that same day, the stolen cash register was found in Lake Forest with blood drops on the ground and on the drawer. Orange County Sheriff Department investigators worked quickly and submitted the evidence to the OCDA Rapid DNA Program for forensic analysis. The next day, March 22, the OCDA Rapid DNA Program was able to develop a DNA profile from the crime scene sample that matched Travis Allard’s DNA profile. The District Attorney’s office Investigators provided OCSD with suspect information and our deputies arrested Allard on March 27, in Lake Forest. Great job to all agencies involved!
