Suspect Ezekiel Zamora

San Jose, CA  The San Jose Police Department's Robbery Unit has been investigating a series of at least eleven (11) robberies which occurred between February 2017 through April 2017. The robberies targeted liquor stores and pharmacies throughout San Jose where the suspects used knives, pepper spray, and physically assaulted employees.

On several robberies, suspect Ezekiel Zamora brought a juvenile female suspect to assist him with the robberies.

On 04-21-17, SJPD Covert Response Unit officers arrested Zamora and the juvenile suspect in the area of Alvin Ave. and Flanigan Dr. in San Jose. During the apprehension, Zamora attempted to evade officers by driving a stolen vehicle through a fence while a different juvenile was inside the vehicle. Zamora has since been charged with multiple counts of robbery and child endangerment.

The case is still on-going and actively being investigated. We are asking for the public's assistance in identifying additional victims who may have not reported their robbery to the police. Zamora and the juvenile suspect committed an additional robbery in the City of Madera. Detectives believe there may be additional robberies outside the San Jose area. The suspects are also connected to multiple burglaries and auto thefts.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Chris Bielecki or Detective Michael White of the San Jose Police Department's Robbery Unit at 408-277-4166.

Persons wishing to remain anonymous may either call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line, (408) 947-STOP (7867), or click the "Submit a Tip" link below. Persons providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect may be eligible for a cash reward from the Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers.
